MOULTON FAMILY. 





BY AUGUSTUS F. MOULTON. 

HE Moultons of this 
country are of Eng- 
lish origin. We find 
the name in the various forms 
Multon, Muleton, Molton, Mole- 
ton, Moulson and Moulton. 
The similarity becomes appar- 
ent in the pronunciation of Mul- 
ton with the long vowel sound, 
i.e. Moolton. The family is 
probably of Norman descent. 
The earliest of the name of 
whom record is found was 
Thomas Multon, or De Multon, 
stated in the Domesday Book 
made by order of the Norman 
William in 1086 to have been 
put in possession of an estate called "Galeshore." Later another 
Thomas Multon or Moulton of mixed Norman and Saxon descent 
a resident of Gillesland in Cumberland, called also in French De 



2 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Vaux, was an attendant of Richard I. in his crusading wars and 
appears prominently in Scott's tale of The Talisman. 1 The name 
of still another Thomas appears on Magna Charta granted by King 
John in 1215. In 1290 Roger was warden of St. Julian's Hospital 
in Southhampshire. The claim of descent from these early families 
though traditional receives support from the general similarity of 
the Multon coats of arms with that of the Moultons given here. 2 
Whatever the original Moultons may have been, the lapse of five 
centuries which blended Norman, Saxon, Dane and Briton into a 
common nationality, made them Englishmen, and the family in the 
seventeenth century seem to have been composed largely of hus- 
bandmen with a decided sprinkling of those who followed the sea. 
It is a fact, as Disraeli once told the House of Lords in caustic 
language, that the descendants of the old families are now to be 
found, with but few exceptions, among the commoners. 

Robert Moulton was in the Royal Navy in 1636, and he and his 
sons James and Robert Jr. still held commands under Parliament 
after the death of Charles I. No less than five captains by the 
name of Moulton appear on the register of the navy at about that 
time. 

The name is common in the Counties Lincoln, Yorkshire, Glou- 
cestershire, Kent, Devonshire, Norfolk and London. In these 
counties Puritanism had its stronghold and the emigrant Moultons 
were evidently of that faith. They came to America with the 

1 See The Talisman Chap. VI. and Scott's note to same. 

2 The Moulton coat of arms here given is a fac simile of that in possession of Henry W. Moul- 
ton, Esq., of Newburyport, Mass. This he copied from an ancient parchment owned by a descend- 
ant of Thomas Moulton, the emigrant, living in York, Me., and which has been handed down in 
the family. The motto is not legible. It accords exactly with a description given in Burke's 
( General Armory, viz. : " Moulton (Gloucestershire, Kent, London and Yorkshire, granted 1 57 1 ). Ar. 
three bars gn. between three bars sa. three, two, two and one. Crest: on a pellet a falcon rising 
ar." The arms of Thomas M niton as given by Burke are : " Moulton or Multon (Baron of Gilles- 
and temp. Edw. I) ar. three bars gu. a label of five points az."

great emigration during the troubled times of Charles I. prior to 
the meeting of the Long Parliament. In those years more than 
twenty thousand Englishmen, oppressed for conscience sake, left 
their homes and came to the New England wilderness. These 
emigrants, says Green in his History of the English People, " were 
not like the earlier colonists of the South, broken men, adventurers 
.... or simply poor men. . . . The bulk were God-fearing farmers 
from Lincolnshire and the Eastern counties. They desired 'only 
the best ' as sharers in their enterprise." 

The earliest settlers of the name in this country so far as can be 
learned were : 

I. Thomas of Jamestown, Virginia, 1624-5. His name appears 
in the list of settlers made at that time, was then twenty-five years 
old, probably not married. It is not known that any descendants 
remain. 

II. Robert of Salem, Mass., 1629. Master Shipwright. Had 
grant of 200 acres of land from Salem. He lived in Charlestown, 
at one time, where the navy yard now is and had a house there. 
The place was called Moulton's Point. It was on this point that 
the British landed when they crossed from Boston to fight the 
battle of Bunker Hill. He filled various offices of trust and 
responsibility and died in 1635. His will is at the Clerk of Courts 
office' in Salem. Descendants in Lynn, Peabody, Western Massa- 
chusetts, Connecticut, New York and the West, also in Paris, 
France. Francis D. Moulton, Beecher's " Mutual Friend " was of 
this family. John T. Moulton, Esq., of Lynn, a scholarly gentle- 
man and member of the New England Historical and Genealogical 
Society and of the Essex Institute of Salem, to whom I am much 



4 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

indebted for information about the earliest families, is also a de- 
scendant. 

III. James of Salem, Mass., 1637, finally of Wenham, Mass. 
Freeman in 1637-8. The descendants of James remain in Beverly 
and Wenham. Some went to Connecticut at an early day and to 
Rhode Island. 

IV. Thomas of Charlestown, Mass., 1630. Had descendants 
for three or four generations and the name then seemed to die out. 

V. Thomas of Newbury, Mass., then Hampton, N. H., 1638, 
finally of York, Me. Most of the York County Moultons are his 
descendants. 

VI. John of Newbury, Mass., then Hampton, N. H., 1638, 
Has descendants in Porter, Standish, Deering and elsewhere in 
Maine. 

VII. William of Newbury, Mass., finally Hampton, N. H., 1639. 
Descendants numerous in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and 
Maine. The Moultons of Scarborough and Parsonsfield, Me., are 
mostly of this branch. 

" That the family has not been wholly wanting in members of 
social and political influence and not limited as to numbers is evi- 
dent from the fact that there are five parishes and two or more 
townships in England, one village in Lawrence Co., Alabama, one 
post office in Lavaca Co., Texas, one in Shelby Co., Illinois, one 
village or post office in Gonzales Co., Texas, one in Appanoosa Co., 
Iowa, one in Missouri and one township in Anglaize Co., Ohio, 
called Moulton, one post office in Madison Co., Illinois and one in 
New Hampshire called Moulton ville and one township in New 
Hampshire called Moultonborough." 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 5 

THE MOULTONS OF HAMPTON, N. H. 

Nearly or quite all the Moultons in the State of Maine are 
descended from the three last named in the foregoing list who 
settled at Winnacunnet or Hampton, N. H. It will only be 
attempted now to present a partial account of the descendants of 
two of those settlers, John and William, omitting those of Thomas 
who moved away from the town. The principal part of the genea- 
logical record here given was obtained from the unpublished His- 
tory of Hampton by Joseph Dow, Esq., the accomplished historian 
of that town, himself a descendant of John. This gives the earlier 
generations with gratifying accuracy. Additions have been made 
to that and it is hoped sufficient data will be found here to afford 
any of their descendants the means of tracing the connection from 
himself to one of those ancestors. 

The names of Thomas and John Moulton are found among the 
grantees and first settlers of Hampton. They had assigned to 
them adjoining house lots and lived neighbors to each other nearly 
twenty years, when Thomas sold his property to Rev. Timothy 
Dalton and removed to York, Me. 

John Moulton and Anne, his wife, were from Ormsby in the 
County of Norfolk, England. They came to America in the 
spring of 1637, having then five children, one son and four daugh- 
ters. Another son born afterwards was baptized at Newbury, 
Mass., and a daughter was born and baptized after their settlement 
in Hampton. 

The name of William Moulton appears at the same time. He 
had come from Ormsby also with the family of Robert Page, being 
a minor twenty years of age. He married Margaret, Mr. Page's 
daughter, and settled near the others. His descendants and those 
of John are numerous in that vicinity. John and William were 



6 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

"examined" before leaving England on the same day, April n, 

1637, and came either in the ship John and Dorethy, of Ipswich, 
William Andrews master, or the ship Rose, of Yarmouth, com- 
manded by a son of the same Andrews, which two ships appear 
to have come together. 

It is not certain when Thomas left England, but he is thought 
to have gone first to St. Christopher in 1635, then being twenty 
years of age, and thence to New England. The relationship of 
these three is unknown, though they are commonly believed to 
have been brothers. 

DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS MOULTON OF 
HAMPTON, N. H. 
Thomas Moulton of Newbury, Mass., was one of the petitioners 
to whom was granted license by the General Court, September 6, 

1638, to begin a plantation at Hampton, N. H. He m. Martha 

. One child only was born in Hampton, namely, Hannah, 

b. June 19, 1655. About the year 1658, says Mr. Dow, he sold his 
farm to Rev. Timothy Dalton, ancestor of Rev. Asa Dalton of St. 
Stephen's church, Portland, Me., and removed to the town of York, 
Me. The records show that three years before, viz.: March 22, 
1655, Thomas Moulton of Hampton, bought of John Allcocke 
"for fiuety pounds three scoore and ten Acers up the River of 
yorke and the full quantitie of Tenn Acers of Fresh Meddow." 
Jeremiah Moulton, his son, was a member of the General Court in 
1692, and later a member of the Council. In the winter of 1724, 
Capt. Jere. Moulton led the forces that captured Norridgewock. 
Whittier refers to him in Afoce Me?07ie: 

" For Bomazeen from Tacconock 
Has sent his runners to Norridgewock 
With tidings that Moulton and Harmon of York 
Far up the river have come." 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 7 

Col. Moulton took a prominent part in the capture of Louisburg 
in 1745. For twenty years, from 1745 to 1765, Jeremiah Moulton 
was Judge of the Probate Court. Most of the Moultons of York 
County are of this branch. Recourse must be had to the records 
there for the names of the children and descendants of Thomas. 

SOME DESCENDANTS OF JOHN MOULTON OF 
HAMPTON, N. H. 

(1) John Moulton was born in England about 1599, married 

Anne , settled in Hampton, being one of those to whom the 

grant of the town was made. In 164 , he was chosen its first dep- 
uty or representative to the General Court at Boston. He died 
between January 23, 1649 and October 1, 1650. Anne, his widow, 
died April 12, 1668, aged 69 years. Children: 

2 I Henry, b. in England about 1623 ; m. Sobriety Hilton ; d. Sept. 8, 1701. 

3 2 Mary, b. in England, 162 ; m. William Sanborn ; d. Oct. 11, 1686. 

4 3 Anne, b. in England ; unmarried when her father's will was made. 

5 4 Bridget, ) twins, b. in England about 1634; both d. unmarried March 19, 

6 s Jane, j 1699, aged 65 years. 

7 6 John, bap. at Newbury, Mass., Mar. 16, 1638; m. Lydia Taylor; d. 1706 (?). 

8 7 Ruth, bap. at Hampton, Mass., Mar. 7, 1641 ; m. Peter Johnson ; d. Sept. 

7, 1718. 

The twins Bridget and Jane for many years occupied a small 
house of their own at Hampton. Anecdotes illustrative of 
their peculiarities of temperament have been handed down by 
tradition. Rev. Cotton Mather wrote concerning them from Bos- 
ton to a friend in London. " At Hampton, a town about fifty 
miles from this place there were twin sisters whose names were 
Bridget and Jane Moulton. The perpetual harmony and sympathy 
between the sisters was the observation of all the neighborhood. 
They were never contented except they were together. If the one 



8 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

were desirous to go abroad the other would be impatient of staying 
at home. If the one were merry the other would be airy. If the 
one were troubled the other would be chagrined. When one was 

for carding the other was for spinning They lived a virgin 

life and in this good accord reached about three-score years. Then 
Death, after a short sickness, arrested the one of them. The other 
grew full of pain and bid her friends not be in a hurry about her 
sister's funeral for hers must accompany it. By dying within a few 
hours after her sister, she answered their expectations. Mr. John 
Cotton, the worthy minister of the place, preached a Funeral Ser- 
mon for this occasion on these words, 2 Sam. 1: 23, 'In their death 
they were not divided.' "

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF DANVILLE, ME. 

PREPARED BY ELIAS BANKS, m. d., LATE OF DANVILLE.* 



COMMUNICATED BY HIS GRANDSON CHARLES EDWARD BANKS, m. d. 




HE town of Danville was first settled in the year 1762, 
when Mr. Abel Davis moved here from Salsbury and 
cleared up a farm near the line between this town & 
New Gloucester. This was forty years before the town was incor- 
porated ; its incorporation being March 6th, 1802. The town was 
incorporated by the Indian name of Pejepscot ; and it held this 
name until [ ] 1817, when an act of the General Court w r as 

passed, by which the name of the town was altered to that of Dan- 
ville. Danville is a small town in the form of a trapezium, and is 
bounded on the N. E. by Great Androscoggin river, on the N. W. 
by Minot and Poland, on the South West by N. Gloucester, and on 
the S. E. by the town of Durham. Its extent on the river is about 
5 miles. The distance from the river at Lewiston Falls, on the 
head of the town, to the New Gloucester line, is about 6 miles; but 
at the lower end of the town, adjoining the town of Durham, the 
distance to the N. Gloucester line is only four miles. The length 
of its S. W. side is not accurately known. The town contains 

about acres, of which about acres are cleared, and 

about acres are wild or woods. The Q-eneral characteristic 

of the soil is that of fertility. Near the river Androscoggin as well 

*This sketch, found among the MSS. of my grandfather, was evidently written about 1S20 in 
response to a letter from the late William D. Williamson, Esq. (also found with the MSS.), who 
was then preparing his " History of Maine " for publication. The sketch is evidently a rough draft ; 
but whether a more extended paper was made from it is uncertain. No evidence of such material 
appears in Williamson's " History of Maine," Danville being finished up, in common with many 
other towns, in two lines, and we are left in doubt whether the writer failed to finish it, or that it 
was found unavailable by the historian. The former seems the more probable ; and it is also certain 
that as arranged Mr. W.'s " History " could not devote so much space to each town. c. E. B. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 13 

as in some other parts of the town, the land is of the light kind, 
being well adapted for corn and grain. But farther from the river, 
especially in the South Western part of the town, the land is rocky 

& heavy. The town records commence -, 1802. The town 

has not less than 16 miles of county roads through it; besides many 
miles of town roads. For the repairs of these roads there is an- 
nually raised between 12 & 15 hundred dollars. Some years the 
sum raised for this purpose has been as high as 18 hundred dollars. 
The people of this town, for the most part, hold their lands 
under the Pejepscot Proprietors, whose title was founded on a con- 
veyance from Warombec, a Sagamore of the Amoriscoggin or 
Androscoggin Indians, to one Thomas Purchase & others. The 
claim of these Proprietors extended from Durham to Lewiston 
Falls, and from the river four miles Southwesterly ; the southwest- 
erly side of said claim runs the same course as the river and is 
called the curve line. Beside this claim of the Pejepscot Proprie- 
tors, the foundation of which has just been mentioned, there is also 
another tract or body of land in the town, which lies on the south- 
west side of the above described land, and which, from its triangu- 
lar form, is called the Gore. This Gore was made by a mistake of 
the inhabitants of New Glouce[ste]r, when that town was incor- 
porated in 1774. Their object was not to interfere with the 
Pejepscot Claim. But, in endeavoring to avoid Scilla, they ran 
upon Charibdis, as the proverb says : They ran their northeast side 
line too far too the west. The quantity of land which this Gore 
contains is said to be about 1800 acres. Col. Moses Little of New- 
bury, obtained the right to it by a purchase from the Government. 
The people who live on this Gore hold their lands under Col. Little 
or his heirs. It does not appear that there was ever a general 
survey of the town ; certain I am there has been none since the 



14 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

town was incorporated. Generally speaking, the people have the 
fee simple in themselves. The average price of lands is about 
eight dollars. 

The wealth of the inhabitants of Danville is by no means exu- 
berant. A considerable proportion of the people, however, may be 
said to be independent in their circumstances. Their farms gener- 
ally produce enough of the necessaries of life, not only for their 
own subsistence, but something also for market. There are four 
trader in the town at present ; but they transact their business on 
quite a small scale. A saw mill and a grist mill have recently been 
erected in the town; but as for machines, there is none. Excepting 
Little Androscoggin river, which runs throusfh the N. E. Corner of 
the town, and Royal's river, which passes thro' the N. W. Corner 
of the town, the streams of water are small. Over these are about 
twenty-five bridges. The bridges over Little Androscoggin river, 
which was built in 1S16, cost the town about 1500 dollars. 

In relation to orchards, the town of Danville is not entitled to 
much celebrity. The people, however, appear to be sensible of 
their utility and are improving in this respect as fast as time and 
circumstances permit. The number of orchards in the town does 
not at present exceed 20. One of these, belonging to Mr. John 
Stinchfield, produced the last year four hundred bushels of apples. 
The produce of all the orchards in this town the last season is sup- 
posed to be about 15 hundred bushels.* The greater part of these 
were made into cyder; it is conjectured that through the whole 
town 1 00 barrels were made. 

The quantity of wheat annually raised in the town may probably 
be estimated at 1000 bushels. The number of paupers supported

bushel a of apples." < :. [£. u.

by the town has, for some years past, been very considerable ; and 
the expense to the town, on their account very burthensome. 

The town of Danville, when considered in relation to its religious 
privileges, must suffer on a comparison with many other towns. 
There is no meeting house in the town either for public worship, 
or the transaction The different denominations of Chris- 
tians meet for public worship either in a dwelling house, a school 
house or a barn, according to the season of the year, or the magni- 
tude of the assembly. The inhabitants are greatly divided in their 
religious sentiments. The religious sects are Baptists, Methodists, 
Congregationalists & Universalists. 

Mr. Joseph Roberts the present minister of the Predestinarian 
Baptists, was the first and only ordained minister in the town. He 
was ordained over the Baptist Church .... 18 . . . . The num- 
ber of members belonging to his church is 

The number of professors of religion of the Methodist denomi- 
nation is 

There is also a Free-Will Baptist Society in the town. The 
number of professors who belong to the latter Church is 

There is no Congregational Church in the town. Four persons, 
two males and two females, who belong to Congregational Churches 
out of town. 

The number of Universalists is 

Mr. Roberts, the Baptist Minister has no stated salary. He sup- 
ports himself as others do by the cultivation of the land — assisted 
now and then by small contributions of a voluntary nature from 
his brethren. 

There are eight school districts in the town. The number of 

schollars from 4 to 16 is about The inhabitants have 

hitherto raised two hundred & fifty dollars for the support of their

OLD NEW ENGLAND GRAVE YARDS. 



BY C. H. CUTTS HOWARD. 




" Truth is strange, stranger than fiction.'" 

I ME may efface many things from the memory of men, 
who have known New England's varied phases, but not 
the pathetic appeal which every neglected grave yard 
sends silently forth, when viewed in person or retrospectively. 
Helpless, forlorn, and yet, picturesque in its neglect, how the heart 
thrills when it reads many of the names enshrined on the quaint 
gray stones. Such a spot, by no means the sole representative of 
the subject of our sketch, is to be found in Kittery, Maine, opposite 
the old church where in former days Dr. Stevens presided. Over- 
shadowed by the house built by Lady Pepperrell after her husband's 
death, and surrounded near and far by no less historic associations, 
slowly, but surely, this quaint resting place of the colonial pioneers 
is fading away. Ever the mournful sound of the sea's requiem 
comes to the ear, as if to soothe and smooth away the neglect of 
years. In such places it is difficult to tell what may have been lost 
by lapse of time which waits for no man. What might at first have 
been remediable is now only so in part. This historic resting place 
is only a representative of many such places throughout New 
England. Nor do the private burial grounds escape our notice. 
' Peculiarly sorrowful is the representative we choose of this time — 
honored custom. In the yard attached to the house, built by Lady 
Pepperrell, four lowly graves are to be seen. Traces of stone exist 
at three and the fourth bears the name — Gunnison. This was 
originally the private burial ground used by the Gunnison family. 
As they were among the earliest settlers of "Piscataquay," (now 



40 Maine Historical a7id Genealogical Recorder. 

Kittery), there is every reason to believe that there may have been 
a large number of graves at one time in this spot. Who can say to 
which members of the family these graves belong? Is it not far 
better to remove all such remains to the nearest burial ground, 
where they may rest in their proper place free from any liability 
to disrespect or injury? Fight it as we may, these fast fading 
graves are silent reproofs. Why should not New England know 
the dead in every ground set apart for that purpose? Ancestral 
example should have taught or developed respect in the generation 
of to-day. Despite their rigor of living, we find no such examples 
of neglect among our early ancestors. This has crept upon us 
within a few years. Can time have calloused the hearts of those 
who live nearest these spots? Else why this universal neglect? 
There is a popular impression in the rural districts of New England 
that such duties are incumbent upon the family. To some extent 
this is of course true, yet tell me, my readers, in either of these 
grave yards, if a rigorous search were made, how many decendants 
could be found? Of the Gunnisons, there are comparatively the 
merest handful as to numbers. Of the other, many are represented, 
but the families have nearly died out The expense of finding 
those who remain would cost as much as the reparation in each 
burial ground. It should be the duty of the town to keep all 
such places in repair. Families scatter and die, as the ancient 
school of men and women, but the towns do not. Inactivity on 
the part of the town is a tacit acknowledgement that it is a 
matter of no great moment. The white marble stones that orleam 
here and there, are exceptions to the universal rule. Some careful 
hand, proud of an honored ancestry, has cared for their last 
resting place in a manner befitting them. Strangely inconsistent 
is our boast of what our forefathers have done for us, when we 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 41 

see how little their memories are revered. In this we refer not 
so much to those who have been famed in history, (though enough 
of those escape notice) , but those sturdy pioneers, which are in the 
grave yard of every New England town. Well might they rise up 
and say, "what have we done to be thus ignored?" 

In central Vermont I recall a grove yard exclusively made up 
of the graves of pioneers- It is now a grave of trees, and the 
careless eye in passing would not detect any sign of mementos, 
if dreaming a grave yard ever existed there. It is a matter of 
regret that the place did not receive better care, when there was 
time to prevent the evil. The growth of trees are comparatively 
modern and for the honor of the town and these early represent- 
atives, the spot should have had better care. There may have been 
an excuse for this neglect, but it is difficult for us to see it. 

Very near Kittery is the grave of that honored man, Francis 
Champernowne. It is in a private cemetery which was originally 
on the land of the deceased. It is bad enough that the grave 
should only be marked by a pile of rough stones; it is worse that no 
hand has seen fit to remove the debris from adjoining graves, of 
which there are twenty. Of these, only one has a stone remaining 
to tell who sleeps beneath. The stone remaining is to the memory 
of Mary Cutts, wife of Charles Chauncey. She was the daughter 
of Richard and Eunice (Curtis) Cutts, and died April 23, 1758, two 
years after her marriage. From the fact of her interment there, 
and the marriage of Francis Champernowne and Mary Cutts, 
widow of the First Robert Cutts, it is generally supposed that this 
was the resting place of a large number of the Cutts family. It 
is almost impossible to determine at this day. If there had been 
any care or authority exercised by the town, in lieu of proper 
people to attend to it, this would not have been. Where stones are 



42 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 



gone or broken, they should be mended and firmly set in sockets of 
granite, and the grounds cleared and protected. Who shall say 
if all this had been done even a decade ago, that antiquarians would 
not now be better able to gather valuable material for genealogies 
and history? Even as means t^ an end, that of serving as guides 
to the antiquarian, should there not be enough feeling of respect 
awakened to induce all people to contribute something toward the 
restoration ? Salem, Saco, Portland, Portsmouth and Boston, all 
have their quoto of colonial pioneers at rest, but are all the sacred 
places well cared for ? Down in the fishing hamlets, and afar in the 
mountains, solitary graves appeal mutely for the touch of a sympa- 
thetic hand. It matters not where they may be, cannot some 
energetic citizen commence nearest home the rescue of these 
historic spots from complete oblivion, and so remind others of 
this filial duty we owe to our forefathers ? 

CHAMPERNOWNE'S GRAVE. 

Over the ocean, the midsummer wind 

Sendeth a message that no man may know. 
Billows come rolling far up on the beach, 

Striving but vainly their mission to teach; 
Striving, but losing. No one can unwind 

The mystical message they fain would show. 

Careth he now what the billows shall bring- 
Over the ocean from nethermost strand ? 

The battle of life in each varied phase, 
The battle he fought in the olden days 

Was long ago won ; but the billows still sing, 
St living to render their message so grand. 

Only a cairn left to mark the lone spot ; 

None but the billows to cherish his name; 
The midsummer wind hath a strange behest, 

A journeying ever on untold quest. 
Oh, who shall solve what the billows solve not, 

In that lonely place where Champernowne came.

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAAM, MAINE. 



INDIAN TROUBLES AND MILITARY AFFAIRS. 



REV. G. M. BODGE, EAST BOSTON, MASS. 




[Continued from Vol. IV.~\ 

HE settlement of frontier towns in America, has always 
involved warfare with the Indians, New Marblehead was 
no exception to this rule, as has been noted above. 
The condition of the early settlers, their habits of living, and their 
many privations, are so closely connected with all that pertains to a 
history of their settlement, that it seems necessary to give here 
an account of their part in the war that engaged nearly all 
Europe, and for many years kept the New England Colonies in 
a constant alarm, and preparation for defense against attack. At 
first thought, it seems strange that a declaration of war between 
two great powers, like England and France, across the sea, could 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 45 

so quickly and so vitally affect an obscure settlement like New 
Marblehead; but so it was, and a little reflection as to the relations 
of the colonies of the two powers, will readily show that war in 
the colonies was almost an inevitable result of war between the 
ruling powers at home. The Indians were the sworn friends of the 
French whenever they had come in contact with them, and were 
always their ready allies against the English. These relations 
can be understood if we remember that the Indians first knew 
the French, through the zealous and devoted Jesuits, intent upon 
converting them to the religion of the Catholic Church ; while 
the English, with the exception of a few true men like Rev. John 
Eliot and Major Daniel Gookin, treated them with contempt, 
and seemed only desirous to wrest their lands from them, cheat 
them in traffic, bend them to Puritan customs and laws, drive them 
from their old homes, and finally exterminate them. The testi- 
mony of the Indians themselves shows the above to be the estima- 
tion in which the French and English were held by them; so 
that just as soon as the French were ready to make war, their wish 
was enough to set their savage allies at once upon the war-path. 

Indications of the coming war between England and France 
became evident to the leading men in the colonies as early as 
the Fall of 1743, and Governor William Shirley of Massachusetts 
one of the most shrewd and energetic men of that time, immedi- 
ately began to provide means of defense for the exposed settle- 
ments against the assaults of the Indians, as may be seen by the 
following papers. 

In the House of Representatives, Nov. 12, 1743. 

"Whereas it appears necessary from the apprehensions this House has of a 
speedy rupture between the crowns of Great Britain and France, that the Inland 
Frontiers in this Province be put into a better posture of Defense, Therefore, 



46 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Voted, that the following sums be and hereby are granted to be paid out of the 
Public treasury to be laid out in some of the Settlements in the County of York. 

Viz: To Berwick One Hundred Pounds ; To New Marblehead, One Hundred 
Pounds ; To Scarborough, One Hundred Pounds ; To Gorham Town, One Hundred 
Pounds; To Sheepscutt, One Hundred Pounds; To Broadbay or to the Inhabitants 
at the Falls called Madomock as the Captain General shall direct, Seventy-five 
Pounds ; To Newbury Narraganset, One Hundred Pounds ; To Phillips Town, 
One Hundred Pounds ; To Damariscotta, Sixty-six Pounds, Thirteen Shillings, 
Fourpence, All which sums shall be taken out of the Seven Thousand Pounds, 
Appropriation, provided in the supply now before the Court, and shall be paid into 
the hands of Messrs. Moses Butler, Tobias Leighton, Samuel Moody, James 
Skinner, Jacob Perkins, To be laid out in the most prudent manner, in erecting 
in each of the before named Settlements for their Security during the War, a 
Garrison or Garrisons of Stockades, or of Square Timber around some Dwelling 
house or houses, or otherwise, as will be mos 1 p or the Security and defense of 
the whole Inhabitants of each place." 

Mass. Archives Vol. 72, page 670. 

November 30, 1743, Governor William Shirley appointed as com- 
mittee to put the above orders in execution, William Pepperell, 
Jeremiah Moulton, John Hill, Samuel Waldo and James Skinner, 
Esquires, and Messrs. Moses Butler, Tobias Leighton and Samuel 
Moody. On December 15, 1743, this Committee met at Falmouth 
and located the Block-houses. War was not formally declared 
between France and England until March 15, 1744, but prepara- 
tions for building the "Block-house" at New Marblehead were 
begun as soon as the appropriation was assured. The war was not 
officially announced in New England until the second day of June, 
but the French at Cape Breton had received the news more than a 
month before, and began hostilities by surprising the Garrison 
and destroying the fort and fishing station at Canseau, and taking 
eighty men to Louisburg as prisoners of war, where they remained 
in captivity all summer, till released on parole and sent to Boston. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 47 

It was doubtless their description of Louisburg, that incited Gov. 
William Shirley to organize an enterprise for its reduction. In this 
expedition against Louisburg all the energies of the New England 
Colonies were engaged, as well as the attention of the Indians t 
as allies of the French. The expedition, consisting of some four 
thousand men from the colonies, (of whom three thousand were 
from Massachusetts, including Maine), sailed from the various ports 
to their rendezvous at Canseau, where Wra. Pepperell, an enterpris- 
ing merchant of Maine, was placed in command ; and the entire 
armament arrived at Louisburg on April 30, 1745; and after a vigor- 
ous siege, with various attempts and partial failures, the French 
commandant, although the fortress was still without a breach, and 
held a garrison of sixteen hundred men, and doubtless was impreg- 
nable to any assaults the English could possibly make, surrendered 
on June 17, 1745. For the time and for several years, the war had 
its field in Nova Scotia and Cape Breton, so that the settlements in 
New England were hardly molested by any general attack, while 
kept in dread and constantly upon their defense, by prowling 
bands of Indians, who ranged the country, and watched their 
opportunity to plunder and kill and burn, whenever it could be 
done with safety to themselves. Ther was danger that the people 
of these frontier towns, discoursed by the prospect of a long Indian 
war, would leave their settlements, and thus remove the line of 
defense inward to the older towns. The Government of Massachu- 
setts took the wisest way to prevent this, in the construction of the 
Block-houses, and the employment of the inhabitants, both in 
the building, and afterwards, as garrison soldiers, allowing them for 
several years to arrange the distribution of wages among them- 
selves. 

The " Province Fort," in New Marblehead, for which the appro- 



48 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

priation of ^ioo was made, was completed, so far as that sum 
sufficed, in the summer of 1744. This building was a "Block- 
house," constructed of heavy hemlock timber, hewn so that no part 
should be of less than one foot in thickness ; it was built fifty 
feet square and two stories high, the upper story jutting one 
foot over the lower; a tier of port-holes was constructed on the level 
of the projection; flankers were built at diagonal corners, twelve 
feet square and two stories high, each surmounted with a "Swivel- 
gun," furnished by the proprietors, as by vote at their meeting 
at Marblehead, July 30, 1744. At the same meeting it was also 
voted to provide powder, etc. The votes are as follows on the 
Proprietor's Records. 

"That the half Barrel (or 50 wV) of Powder purchased of Mr. William Mabery 
be paid for by the Proprietors, being ^"20 9 s . Old Tenor, & the said Powder to 
be for the use of the Inhabitants of S tl . Township on any extraordinary Occasions 
according to further direction." 

"Voted that said Powder be put into the the hands of Mr. W m . Mabery, he 
supplying the Inhabitants (who need it) to the value of half a pound to each 
man, he receiving money for the same (at twelve shillings p r . pound Old Tenor) 
or note therefor payable to him or Order, and to Returne the same to the Prop rs . 
Treasurer for the time being and the remainder of Said Powder to be kept in 
the Block House for the use thereof in time of action, in case the same be attacked 
by the Indians or any other enemies, and no other ways whatsoever, he likewise 
giving account how the said powder is expended on said Occasions, and that he 
give a Receipt accordingly." 

"That the present Com tee . be and hereby are directed (at the Publick charge 
of the proprietors) to purchase two Swivel-guns, and send them to the said 
Townships for the use of the Prop 18 , to be placed in the Block House for the 
Defence thereof." 

This Block-house was built upon Home-lot No. 33, originally 
drawn as the "Ministry" right, and stood upon the "second divis- 
ion " of this lot, on the East side of the " Main road," very nearly in 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 49 

the center of the "Home-lot" territory and on the highest point 
of land therein. A stockade of palisades, or rough logs, about one 
foot in size and twelve feet in height, and set up some thirty 
feet from the house, (and so near together that an Indian could not 
pass between), enclosed the fort. An iron nine-pounder gun"* was 
presented by the Province to be used for firing alarms. 

In May, 1746, the Settlers petitioned the proprietors, for leave 
to pull down the meeting-house, and use the timber to enlarge and 
strengthen their Block-house, while preventing its possible occupa- 
tion by the Indians, as a place whence they might besiege and 
greatly trouble those in the fort. Before the proprietors could 
take action, the settlers proceeded to put their own request into 
execution, and in the enlargement of the Block-House, place was 
appropriated and adapted to the uses of public worship. 

In the House of Representatives November 12, 1743, (the next 
day after the Block-houses were voted), it was voted to ask the 
Governor to give authority to raise "Snow-Shoe Companies" in 
various parts, on the frontiers of Massachusetts and Maine. These 
companies were to be made up of "fifty ableboclied, effective 
men in each;" and each officer and private centenel, to provide him- 
self with a good pair of Snow-Shoes, one pair of Moggisons and 
one Hatchett; and during the war, were to hold themselves in read- 
iness to march "at the shortest warning," against the enemy. The 
duty of organizing these companies and nominating proper officers 
was assigned to a committee consisting of W m . Pepperill, Jeremiah 
Moulton, Sam 11 . Waldo and Arthur Noble. 



*Squire T. L. Smith, in his history, relates that this gun and one of the swivels was, in 1776, 
carried to Portland and put on board the Privateer " Reprieve," and never returned, while the other, 
sometime about 1835, was intentionally destroyed at North Windham.

The following company was one of these which was organized in 
this part of old York County, and contains several names of 
New Marblehead men, and few besides those within easy reach of 
Falmouth and Scarborough. The service of these men seemed to 
have been much like that of the "minute-men" of 1775, but with a 
different kind of foe. The following papers copied from the Massa- 
chusetts Archives may be of interest to many outside the natives 
of Windham, as nearly all the neighboring towns had a quota in 
the company.

to his Excellency's order and the voate of the General Court witness my hand. 

Falmouth, April y e 14, 1744. 

Domini : Jordan. 

The duty of furnishing the Block-Houses with garrisons was 
at first entrusted to the inhabitants under the direction of a Lieut, 
or Sergeant, according to the number of families. In New Marble- 
head, the Government allowed "pay and subsistence" for eighteen 
men in the Summer and nine in the Winter. Thomas Chute was 
in charge of the garrison and the distribution of money which was 
impartially dispensed to all the families, and the duty of guarding 
the Fort, and those who were at work in the fields, and occasionally 
scouting short distances around the settlement, was divided as 
equally as possible among the men of the township. In Mr. 
Chute's old account book, still preserved, and now in posession of 
the Maine Historical Society, there are several pages and fragments 
of pages devoted to these "Garding accounts. Rev. John Wight 
was placed on the roll and allowed pay, but was doubtless relieved 
from the actual service of guarding by the voluntary substitution of 
members of his flock in turn. Altogether this "pay and subsis- 
tence" arrangement, with the power of adjusting their own methods 
of service and rates of wages, was very acceptable and helpful 
to the settlers, being almost the only way in which they could 
obtain money; and their rough new farms, at the best, could yield 
but scanty crops and very little, if any, variety; there is little doubt 
that, without this assistance from government they would have 
been forced to abandon the settlement and seek the older and safer 
towns. (The wages of a garrison soldier was about five and a half

shillings per week). As it was they suffered many privations, pre- 
vented from cultivating their land by the threatened invasions of 
French and Indians from Canada, between whose " Great River " 
and their " Pesumscot " stretched an unbroken wilderness. 

Prowling bands of the local tribes were also discovered now and 
then in various quarters, and kept the settlers in constant dread. 
These Indians had been accustomed to come familiarly amongst 
the settlers, before the declaration of war, for purposes of trade, but 
now were seldom seen except by chance, and at such times were 
either sullen or threatening, and by all appearances showed their 
hostility; the settlers suspected them of intending the worst, and 
dreaded and hated them accordingly.

GOODMAN LIBBY'S PASSAGE OVER. 



BY C. T. LIBBY. 




N the Maine Historical Society's volume containing the 
Trelawny papers, in a note on John Libby, (p. 290), the 
editor says, "we may reasonably suppose that he came 
with John Winter in the bark Agnes, which arrived on the island 
on May 24, 1636." A collation of some of the letters and accounts 
shows that this is an over-hasty conclusion. 

On page 289 begins the book of accounts for the year 1639-40. 
The time covered is to June 17, 1640, but the account begins with 
eleven settlements with employees 1 dated Feb. 13, 1639-40. The 
settlements with all the others are dated June 22, 1640. Why this 
difference, unless, perhaps, the term of service of these eleven ex- 
pired in the middle of the fiscal year of the plantation? 

This hypothesis is confirmed by Mr. Winter's letters of July and 
December, 1639. "I made som of our land men fishermen this last 
yeare . . . William Freythy & Nycholas White [two of the 
eleven] went to sea all the last winter & did very well, & they ar to 
go to sea againe this, so long as their tymes do last." (p. 164.) 
"And wheras You write me to devide the land men, they ar but 7 
in all to husbandry, ... & after the next February there will 
be no more left but Jonas Beill & John Barrage." (p. 169.) "I 
thinke our fishermen & land men, when their tymes ar out, will 
go from vs." " Yf they go away, their tymes Comes out the 13th 
of February." (p. 204.) 

Perhaps this is the nearest equivalent to the ancient word servant, which was a word of general 
significance in Mr. Winter's clay. The new words, or new uses of the old words, employee, operative, 
workvian, hand, laborer, clerk, etc., have in common use cut servant down to an equivalence with 
menial. 



62 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Each of the eleven settlements made Feb, 13, 1639-40 mentions 
the party's "third year's service." Hence their service must have 
begun Feb. 13, 1736-7. Was this the date of their arrival at 
Richmond's Island, or the elate of their entering Mr. Trelawny's 
service in England? 

The indentures printed on pp. 336-342 provide that the ser- 
vant's three years shall begin to run "from and after the hower 
of his arryvall in Newe England." On page 113 Mr. Winter com- 
plains that "Georg Dearinge, the house Carpenter, takes the tyme 
of the beginninge of his 3 yeares servize to begin the first day 
he Came to yoar house." On page 181 is a list of parties that 
had bound themselves to serve three years " at the plantation." 
On page 191 is Mr. Winter's charge for his own services, "for 
my portage money from the 24th of May 1636 to the 24th of May 
1639." It would seem, therefore, that February 13th was the 
date of arrival at the island. 

This is confirmed by several passages, which also render it clear 
that the vessel that brought them over was the Hercules, William 
C Imp fie II, master. 

Mr. Winter writes under date June 18, 1636, (p. 94), "Yf you 
purpose to keep any more men the next yeare then these three 
bootes Company that Came with me, I will Intreat you to send 
honester men, . . . for their is no expectinge to haue any 
of these men which weare heare before I Came to stay after the 
next fishing season." A year later he wrote, (p. 107), "Of the 
fish which the 2 bootes Company made that Came in the Her- 
culus," etc., and in the same letter, (p. 109), "These two bootes 
Company that Came last haue made but a poore sommers worke, 
as you will perceaue by their fish they haue made." Immediately 
in connection with the statement of their catch, (p. 107), he wrote, 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 63 

" The fishing since the myddell of February hath proved very yll 
& I desire (except you Cann provide a ship to Com in such season 
as shee may be heare by Christmas) to forbeare sendinge a ship to 
make a voyage, for they will hardly quite Cost;" accounting thus 
for the poor success of the two boat's companies that came in 
the Hercules, and implying clearly that the "myddell of February" 
was the time of their arrival. 

Again, July 10, 1639, Mr. Winter wrote of Priscilla, the maid, 
(one of the eleven), "She hath bin now 2 yeares \ in the house," 
etc., which, reckoned exactly, would make the date of her arrival 
Jan. 10, 1636-7. 

The course of trade may be gathered from the second voyage of 
the Hercules, two years later. On page 147 we have her invoice, 
dated in Plymouth, Sept. 20, 1638, and on the next page it appears 
that she was to sail first for the Isle of Mayo, one of the Cape de 
Verdes. She arrived at Richmond's Island January 30. (p. 155.) 
"The Herculus departed hence the 17th of July with fish & 
traine for Bilbow." (p. 199.) Carrying English goods to the 
Spanish islands, they exchanged for wines for New England; re- 
turning, they carried fish to Spain and exchanged for wines for old 
England. 

While the Hercules was still at Richmond's Island on her 
second voyage, under date July 8, 1639, the Rev. Mr. Gibson begins 
a letter to Mr. Trelawny, "After remembrance of my duty, I giue 
you to understand that yours by the Hercules I haue receyued," and 
later in the letter complains that he has not received " £5 you 
promised me upon my Voyage, as hath beene so often spoken of, 
as also by your Letters sent to mee by the Hercules the last time 
she was heer? An earlier reference to this letter, (p. 128), gives 
the date of it as November 30, 1636, and enables us to fix approxi- 



64 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

mately the time the Hercules left England. On her first trip 
she must have sailed soon after Nov. 30, 1636; arrived at Rich- 
mond's Island February 13th; left again (p. 119) July 8, 1637. 

The eleven persons thus shown to have crossed the Atlantic in 
midwinter, 1636-7, are Tristram Alger, John Libby, Nicholas 
White, William Freathy, Benjamin Stevens, Thomas Shepherd, 
Priscilla Bickford, Edward Mills, Richard Martin, Stephen Lap- 
thorne, and John Hole. 

There were others who came with them in the Hercules, among 
them Mr. Winter's wife and daughter, (and this notwithstanding the 
editor's statement (p. 115) that "she probably came out with him 
the year before, arriving May 24, 1636.") Under date June 28, 

1636, Mr. Winter wrote, (p. 91), "I will Intreat you to helpe my 
wyfe to som money yf she need. I haue a desire to haue her to 
Comm hither in our next supply." The Hercules, arriving the next 
February, was the "next supply," and the only one before July 10, 

1637, when Madam Winter sent her regards to Madam Trelawny. 
(p. 115.) That his daughter Sarah came at the same time is indi- 
cated by what Mr. Winter wrote (p. 167) of the maid Priscilla, (a 
passenger on the Hercules), that "for a yeare & quarter or more 
she lay with my daughter vppon a good feather bed," etc. 

Charles and Philip Hatch, John Hempson, John Amory, Thomas 
Bone, Richard Nyles, and Nicholas Edgecomb were also, as it 
appears, of the company that came on the Hercules; and, perhaps, 
Nicholas Matthew, Edward Treby, and Roger Satterley. 

Probably it would be possible, by a tedious process of collation, 
to construct a connected narrative history of the plantation which 
should be at once particular and reliable.

NOTES, SOCIETIES, Etc. 



Sagadahoc Historical Society. — A meet- 
ing of this society was held in the Common 
Council Rooms at Bath on Dec. 2, at 7 1-2 
o'clock p. m., the President, Mr. P. M. Reed, 
in the chair. A lengthy and interesting report 
of the last Field Day of the society was read by 
him. Mr. Charles E. Allen of Dresden spoke 
of the early days of Pownalboro, now Dresden, 
and mentioned the visit to Tallyrand, Dresden, 
in 1749. Mr. J. L. Douglas read a copy of a 
deed of the transfer of a tract of land by Robin 
Hood to James Smith for a peck of corn to be 
given annually to Robert Hood, and his heirs. 
The land ran from Abagadasset Point on the 
north to Winslow's Rocks on the south and to 
Nequasset on the east. The deed was dated 
May 8th, 1648. 

Miss Salome H. Snow presented to the so- 
ciety a plan copied from the original of the old 
town of Pejepscot, now Brunswick. The origi- 
nal plan was made in 1765 by John McKeen of 
Brunswick. 

A "mourning ring" worn by Hannah Moody 
after the death of her husband which occurred 
in 1746, was next presented to the society by 
Miss Mary Moody, grand-daughter of Hannah 
Moody. 

The shield of a hilt of a sword or rapier> 
found by David Potter in the year 1836, on 
Mill Island, just south of Plockomock Head, 
was presented to the society by Mrs. Charles G. 
M. Stinson, daughter of David Potter. 

A birds-eye view of Portland, made two days 
after the great fire of July 4th, 1866, was added 
to the society's collections, a gift from Captain 
A. G. Marston. Two bound volumes of the 
Northern Tribune of the years 1855 and 1856 
were next announced by President Reed, as a 
gift to the society by A. G. Tenney of Brunswick, 
who was editor of the Tribune those two years. 

On motion of H. E. Upton it was voted that 
the thanks of the society be extended to the per. 
sons presenting the articles. 



Rev. T. A. White was selected to look up the 
history of West Bath. The meeting adjourned 
at nine o'clock. 



Marsh Family. — We have received the Gen- 
ealogy of John Marsh of Salem, Mass., and his de. 
scendants, 1633-1888. The work is very nicely 
arranged and printed in a book of nearly 300 
pages, 8 mo. It mentiones the family branches 
in different states, with historical sketches and 
anecdotes of great interest to the family and 
descendants. The book is well indexed and 
handsomely bound. Collected and published by 
Col. Lucius Marsh, 6 Columbus square, Boston 
Mass. Revised and edited by Rev. Dwight W. 
Marsh, of Amherst, Mass. 



History of Weare, N. H. — This is a thor- 
oughly written history of one of New Hamp- 
shire's historic towns, full of everything to enter- 
tain and instruct any who have the slightest 
regard for a knowledge of our ancestors, their 
homes, and surroundings. It is a book of 1064 
pages, and contains 75 elegant illustrations with 
a large folding map of the town. We think no 
item could have been left unnoticed between the 
years 1735 and 1888. A well arranged genea- 
logy follows the town history ; this is arranged 
by A. P. Collins. The work is written by Wm. 
Seittle and published by the town. Price in 
cloth by mail, $4.50. In leather, $5.00. Ad- 
dress, S. C. Gould, Manchester, N. H. 



Memorial to my Honored Kindred. — By 
Charles W. Darling, Utica, N. Y. This is a 
large, nicely made pamphlet, containing genea. 
logical mention of the Darling, Ely, Noyes, Pier- 
pont, Haynes, Harlakenden, Chauncey, Dana, 
Chandler, Abramse, Mygatt, Hamilton, Robert- 
son, and Davis, families and is illustrated.

Eastport and Passamaquoddy. — A collec- 
tion of historical and biographical sketches, com- 
piled by William Henry Kilby, with notes and 
additions. This is a book of more than 500 pp. 
i2ino., well written and illustrated with maps 
and plans of the places it describes, and also

Island, Embargo and Non-Intercourse, War of 
1S12, Political and Ecclesiastical History, Bio- 
graphical Sketches, &c, &c. On the whole this 
is one of the books no Maine Historian should 



be without. Published by Edward E. Shead 
& Co., "Eastport, Maine. 

Notice. — By an unavoidable hitch, (not want 
of money or patronage,) we have been delayed 
in the issue of this No., which should have been 
published in January last. We hope to follow 
this immediately with the succeeding Nos. until 
our date is overtaken. — Ed.

pense, to place a key to the principal Engliah Records" on his own book-shelves, thus allow- 
ing him to at once ascertain what information the Records are likely to afford him. As the 
official "reference " to the Records is also added, he can bespeak an "office copy," or 
obtain through a record-agent, an abstract or precis of a document without leaving his own 
library. The series appeals to the interests of the Historian, the Genealogist, the Topog- 
rapher, and the General Student, and must prove of incalculable value to American and 
Colonial Genealogists. The First Series consists of the following Indexes, with official 
references : —

less than 48 Pages. The January part is now ready. Subscription £l Is. per annum, post

issued quarterly: annual subscription £l lis. 6d. post free. London: Chas. J. Clark, 4

Vol. V. 1888. No. 2. 

HON. WILLIAM DURKEE WILLIAMSON. 1 



BY HON. JOSEPH WILLIAMSON, A. M. 




D. WILLIAMSON, the oldest son of George and Mary 
(Foster) Williamson, was born in Canterbury, Conn., on 
. July 31, 1779. The name given him was in affectionate 
remembrance of his mother's maternal grandfather, William 
Durkee, and of her eldest brother of the same name, who had 
joined the army of the Revolution, and at that time was supposed 
to be dead. Through his father, he was probably a descendant of 
one of the earliest settlers of Massachusetts. A family tradition 
has long existed, that three brothers named Williamson came from 
England soon after the landing of the Pilgrims, and that one of 
them, who settled in the Old Colony, was the ancestor of the 
subject of this sketch. 

The most remote ancestor however, from whom the family 
descent can be distinctly traced is Timothy Williamson, a freeman 
of Plymouth Colony, in 1647, an d a soldier in King Philip's war, 
from Marshfield, Mass. He died in 1676, leaving nine children, 
four of whom were sons. Timothy died unmarried; Caleb lived

in Hartford, Conn. — no issue; Nathan died before June, 1718, leav- 
ing two sons, Timothy, Samuel, and six daughters; George, born 
1675, the great-grandfather of William D., died in Middleboro, 
1742. He had seven children, of whom two were sons. George 
left no issue, and Caleb, born in Harwich, 17 15; married Sarah 
Ransom, of Middleboro', and died in Canterbury, Conn., 1795. He 
had nine children, six of whom were sons. Nathan died unmar- 
ried: Caleb married Mercy Jackson, and had eight children; 
Robert died childless; Ebenezer married Hannah Foster of Can- 
terbury, and resided at Pittston, Maine, and Brooklyn, Conn., dying 
at the latter place 1830, leaving no issue; George; and Joseph who 
died at Richfield, N. Y., 1809. 

George Williamson, the last named, was father of William D., and 
was born in Middleboro' Jan. 15, 1754, and afterward removed with 
his father's family to Canterbury. He served in the army of the 
Revolution, and participated in the battle of W T hite Plains. After 
peace was declared he was captain of an artillery company in 
Brooklyn. 

In 1793 he changed his residence to Amherst, Mass., where he 
cultivated a farm until 1807, when he removed to Woodstock, Vt. of 
which town he was repeatedly a Selectman. Thirteen years after- 
wards he became a resident of Bangor, Me., and died there Oct. 10, 
1822, aged 68. He was a man of sound judgment, and high moral 
rectitude. 

His own limited advantages, which he always regretted, made 
him a constant and zealous advocate of education, and induced him 
to bestow it upon his sons to the extent of his resources. His wife, 
the daughter of William and Hannah (Durkee) Foster, of Canter- 
bury, born Nov. 17, 1758, was of the fifth generation in descent 
from Abraham Foster, who emigrated from Exeter, England, to

Ipswich, Mass., about 1635. Soon after the peace of 1783 her 
father removed to Whitehall, N. Y., where he died May 15, 1825, 
aged 90 years; she died at Belfast, Me., Jan. 16, 1832, aged 73 
years. The parents of William D. were married July 9, 1778. 
Their other children were Aseneth, married Jacob Childs, of Con- 
stable, N. Y., where she died 1862, aged 80; Robert, died at 
Amherst, Aug. 1, 1803, aged 19; George resided at Pittston, Me., 
where he died Feb. 1, i860, aged jy, Joseph, a lawyer, and a gradu- 
ate at the University of Vt., in 181 2, resided at Belfast, Me., from 
18 1 6 to the time of his death Sept. 30, 1854, aged 65; Mary, 
married Dr. Roswell Bates of Fort Covington, N. Y., and died 
Aug. 9, 1828, aged 35; Hannah died unmarried Aug. 2, 1803, and 
Sarah married Dr. Ora F. Paddock of Fort Covington, N. Y., where 
she died Feb. 17, 1829, aged 30. During boyhood the subject of 
our sketch had all the advantages that the common schools of 
Amherst, kept only in winter, could afford. A taste for books soon 
became developed in him, and at the age of thirteen he had master- 
ed the Latin Grammar without the aid of a teacher. He soon after 
fitted himself for a school teacher, and in the spring of 1798 took 
charge of a private school at Pittston, N. Y., where he remained 
nearly two years. During the winter of 1799 he taught school in 
Amherst, and resumed his classical studies, reciting to John and 
Solomon Strong, students at law in the office of their father, the 
Hon, Simeon Strong, soon after one of the justices of the Supreme 
Judicial Court. 

Having completed his preparatory course at Deerfield Academy, 
he entered Williams College as a freshman in October, 1800, at 
the age of twenty-one. Dissatisfied with his treatment at this 
College, he enrolled himself as a student at Brown University, 
where he felt more at ease. He graduated Sept. 5, 1804, with 



76 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

highest honors. Upon leaving College he commenced the study o* 
law, which he completed with Jacob McGaw, Esq., long an eminent 
lawyer of Bangor. He was admitted as an attorney in the Court 
of Common Pleas at Castine, which was then the shire town of 
Hancock County, Nov. 12, 1807, 

Three years later, he was admitted as counsellor in the Supreme 
Judicial Court, and believing that Bangor was destined to become 
a place of great importance, he established himself there. With the 
good success which favored him, he was able in 181 2 to purchase 
and occupy the estate at the westerly corner of Main and Middle 
Streets, which, for over thirty years remained his home. 

Although he had been so short a time at the bar, on Jan. 14, 
1808, he was commissioned by Gov. Sullivan, County Attorney for 
Hancock County. This turned his attention to the criminal law, 
and brought him to confront the ablest lawyers. Amid the changes 
effected by the party spirit of the times, the law under which he 
was appointed was repealed, but was again revived, when he was 
re-appointed September 3, 181 1, to the same office. This he held, 
although under a different Administration, until 18 16, when 
Penobscot County was formed. He was appointed postmaster of 
Bangor Nov. 27, 1809, a trust which continued in his hands until 
the separation of Maine from Massachusetts in 1820. The political 
career of Mr. Williamson commenced in 181 6, when he was nomi- 
nated as State Senator, but failed of an election. During the 
succeeding four years Mr. Williamson was returned by large 
majorities. The Senate then contained forty members, nine of 
whom were from the district of Maine. 

While a member of that body he was for three years chairman 
of the " Committee on Eastern Lands." In the project of a sepa- 
ration of Maine from Massachusetts, which was effected in 1820,

after long agitation, and after the measure had been thrice sub- 
mitted to the people, he was an early, leading and active agent. 
His wise influence in effecting an amicable dismemberment of the 
political ties which had so long bound the great Province of Maine 
to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and in securing an equit- 
able division of the public property was conspicuous, and recognized 
by his immediate election as a member of the first senate of the 
new State. Appointed to several of the most important commit- 
tees of that body, before the spring session closed, he was chosen 
its president. The existence of the first legislature of Maine 
covered a period of seventeen months, from the last Wednesday of 
May, 1820, to the first Wednesday'of January, 1822, during which 
there were two protracted sessions. The labors of both branches 
were arduous and incessant, embracing the codification of the laws, 
and a complete organization of government. By his legislative 
experience and legal knowledge, Mr. Williamson was largely in- 
strumental in shaping the policy of the new State. 

Hon. William King, the first governor, having been appointed a 
commissioner under the treaty with Spain, Mr. Williamson, as presi- 
dent of the Senate, became acting and constitutional chief magis- 
trate. This position he held from May 28, 1821, to December 5 of 
the same year, when he resigned, in order to take his seat in the 
Seventeenth Congress, to which he had been elected the Septem- 
ber before, from the district embracing the eastern portion of the 
State. He reached Washington soon after the session com- 
menced. Those now accustomed to make the journey from Bangor 
in less than forty-eight hours may be surprised to learn that it 
occupied him nine consecutive days, by stage, at an expense of 
sixty dollars. Mr. Williamson declined a second nomination for 
Congress, and in March, 1823, resumed the practice of his pro- 



78 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

fession at Bangor. The following year he was appointed judge of 
probate, a position which he occupied for sixteen years, until dis- 
qualified by a constitutional change in the tenure of judicial 
officers. 

In 1834, and again in 1839, he was a commissioner for examining 
the condition of the banks of Maine. For several years he was 
president of the People's Bank of Bangor. Under a resolve of the 
Legislature of 1840 he was selected as chairman of a commission 
to visit the reformatory institutions of the Northern States, with a 
view to the improvement of the Maine State Prison. The result 
of his investigations was embodied in a printed report, which was 
instrumental in effecting salutary reforms. This was the last 
public station that he occupied. 

Mr. Williamson began collecting material for his History of 
Maine in 1817, when a member of the Massachusetts Senate. 
Volumes of manuscripts, copied exclusively by his own hand, bear 
witness to the indefatigable research and persevering labor which, 
in the midst of legislative duties, he found time to bestow upon his 
undertaking. It would seem that, for many years, he occupied 
every leisure moment when abroad in transcribing some historical 
fact, or in verifying some date from authorities not accessible at 
home. It was not until 1824, that his plan for compiling a history 
of the new State assumed a definite form. He then commenced 
arranging the material at hand, and for the next six years devoted 
every hour which could be spared from sleep or business, to the 
undertaking. In 1832 the work was given to the public. The first 
edition of the history of Maine filled two octavo volumes, of six 
hundred and sixty, and seven hundred and fourteen pages respect- 
ively. One thousand copies were printed, three hundred and fifty 
of which were purchased by the State, and distributed to each town

and organized plantation within its limits. A second edition, en- 
larged by an index, and some additional matter, accompanied by a 
portrait of the author, and an engraving of the Capitol at Augusta, 
was published in 1839. The publication of this work, at once gave 
Judge Williamson a high reputation; it was favorably noticed by the 
press, and the prediction of the North American Review, that it 
would "long be regarded as a standard history," has been verified 
during the half century in which it has maintained its pre-eminence. 
Upon retiring from active business the author intended to prepare 
a revised edition; ill health however prevented, and the work re- 
mains as it originally appeared, a simple, unvarnished record of 
facts which we cannot now do without; we find other valuable 
historical sketches from his pen in various publications of his time; 
but with the exception of occasional contributions to periodical 
literature, Judge Williamson published but little during the last few 
years of his life. 

Mr. Williamson was first married June 10, 1806, at Amherst, 
Mass. while a student at law, to Jemima Montague, youngest 
daughter of Josiah and Submit Rice, who had been adopted into 
the family of her uncle, Gen. Zebina Montague, of Amherst. She 
died at Bangor, June 22, 1822, aged thirty-six. By this marriage 
he had five children, viz: Caroline J. who married first, Nathaniel 
Haynes, a lawyer of Bangor, and second, John Chapman of Boston; 
Harriet H. who married Paul R. Hazeltine of Belfast, Me., and died 
in Boston Dec. 11, 1884; William F., who died Sept. 6, 1832, aged 
18, while a member of the junior class of Bowdoin College; Mary 
C, who married first, Richard W. Shapleigh, and second, Living- 
ston Livingston, a lawyer of New York; and Frances A., who 
married Mayo Hazeltine of Boston, where she died Mar. 31, 1847. 
His second wife whom he married June 3, 1823, was Susan E., 



80

daughter of Judge Phinehas White, of Putney, Vt; she died March 
9, 1824. The following year he married Mrs. Clarissa, widow of 
Joseph Wiggin and daughter of Edward and Abigail Emerson of 
York, Me. The only grand-children of Judge Williamson now 
living are Henry W. Haynes of Boston; and Mayo W. Hazeltine 
and Philip Livingston both of New York. 

In all the duties of life, whether public or private, Judge William- 
son ever acted from the most sincere and conscientious motives. 
No man had less duplicity of character, no one was ever more 
devoted to his friends, and none ever received warmer friendship 
in return. Gratitude in him was a sacred duty never to be relin- 
quished, and those only who were best acquainted with him knew 
the depth of his feelings and the warmth of his heart. He died 
at Bangor, May 27, 1846, at the age of 66 years.

General Moulton was a man of wealth and influence and was a 
noted character. Many curious stories about him have been 
handed down by old folk's lore. He is said to have bargained his 
soul to Satan for a boot full of gold and then to have cheated Old Nick 
by removing the bottom of the boot so that it could not be filled. 
After his death the ghosts of himself and wife were thought to 
visit the old mansion by night, he thumping up and down stairs 
with his heavy gold headed cane and his wife moving about with 
rustling silk gown. The ghosts were formally exorcised and " laid " 
with impressive ceremonies and afterwards walked no more. Whit- 
tier's poem " The New Wife and the Old ", is founded upon one of 
these traditional tales. 1 Children : 

1 The following letter from Mr. Whittier refers to the poem : 

Oakland, Dan vers, Mass., May 14, 1888. 
" A. F. Moulton, Esq. I only heard the tradition of Gen. Moul ton's first and second wives but 
did not know their names. There are many stories relating to the General. It was said that he 
haunted the old mansion and used to tramp up and down stairs in his military boots. Parson Milton 
of Newbury, was sent for to ' lay ' him. 

Thine truly, John G. Whittier. " 

Another authority states that the officiating clergyman was Parson Bodily, of 
Milton.

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE, 



INDIAN TROUBLES AND MILITARY AFFAIRS. 



REV. G. M. BODGE, EAST BOSTON, MASS. 



[Continued from p. J2.~\ 

JjERY little is known of the local tribe besides that 
1^ lifej 1 afforded in the Indian Treaty heretofore given in this 
llgSjllil history ; I have nowhere else found any reference to the 
tribe, nor met with any local traditions concerning them." By that 
document it appears that the number in the tribe was twenty-five 
men besides women and children, and the whole tribe could not 
have numbered more than two hundred souls at the most. There 
are some evidences that one of the principal villages of this tribe 
was on what is now "Raymond Cape," near the "Painted Rocks," or 
"Images," though these are doubtless the work of an earlier people, 
of whom, perhaps, these, who call themselves "Pesumscots," were 
not the descendants. Only fragments of the once powerful tribes 
of Indians remained within a hundred miles of the shores of New 
England, in 1740. A hundred and twenty years before, the Pil- 
grims had landed at Plymouth, following close upon the terribly 
devastating plague of 161 6-18 which had swept away in some lo- 
calities whole tribes, so that they never again gained a tribal 
standing. Four generations and continuous emigrations of white 
people had completed the ruin with their corruptions and oppressions 
and wars; and now at the time of which we are speaking, only 
forlorn vestiges of the former great tribes remained, scattered 
here and there, along the rivers and beside the lakes, gaining a 
precarious livelihood by hunting and fishing; exchanging their furs 
with the English, for guns, ammunition, knives and many cheap 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 91 

trinkets, but most of all, and most ruinous, the white man's "fire- 
water." There are many localities on the banks of the river and 
about Sebago Lake which bear the marks of having been sometime 
occupied as Indian villages, and in many places their implements 
and pipes and bones have been ploughed up by the farmers from time 
to time as they have ploughed across some ancient Indian " Burying 
Place." One quite extensive village, and probably burying ground, 
was situated at the foot of " Long Pond," on the east side of the 
pond, on the farm formerly belonging to John Chute, grandson of the 
first settler of Windham. "Fry's Island" and "Indian Island" in 
Sebago Lake, and many other places might be mentioned where in- 
dications have been found of former Indian occupancy. 

But however few and weak and widely scattered they might be, 
the Indians inspired the frontier settlers everywhere with a constant 
and terrible dread, not of themselves so much, as of their prowling 
and cowardly methods of approach and attack. There was no way 
of safety except ceaseless watching and guarding within the walls 
of a block-house; months might pass without sight of an Indian, 
and then in a single unguarded hour a whole band would seem to 
rise out of the earth, kill, burn, destroy and disappear. 

The work of garrisoning the frontier towns was pressed with the 
utmost vigor, and most of the families doubtless moved into the 
block-house at New Marblehead before it was finally completed ; 
and it is probable that most of the settlers in the towns where the 
Province had built garrison-houses were safe inside them by the 
end of May, 1744. During the months of May and June, Parson 
Thomas Smith's Journal has frequent references to the great excite- 
ment of the people concerning the war. There was fear in the 
seaport towns of combined attacks of French ships by sea and 
their Indian allies by land; and in May, three hundred out of the five 



92 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

hundred soldiers raised in the Province were sent into these seaboard 
towns, of whom eighty-five were stationed in Falmouth. In June 
three hundred more were sent down. In July, a committee of the 
General Court, having a small party of Mohawk Indians with 
them, convened at " Georges," for a treaty with the Penobscot 
tribes, and a semblance of peace was accomplished and a partial 
agreement of an offensive alliance against the St. Johns and Cape 
Sable Indians ; and upon the strength of this, many of the soldiers 
returned home aud there seemed for the time a prospect that the 
field of war would be transferred to Cape Breton and the French 
dominions. 

Oct. 25, 1744, an order passed the General Court, authorizing a 
bounty of one hundred pounds for every scalp of a male Indian 
above the age of twelve years; and fifty pounds for each woman or 
a child less than twelve years. Five pounds more was offered for 
a prisoner than a scalp. In November, the only garrisons that 
remained were made up of the inhabitants who were employed in 
this service. Capt. Jordan's snow-shoe company was the only active 
force in this vicinity. The winter passed without any attacks, but 
with the spring the old discontent was manifested by occasional 
depredations of prowling bands here and there; the first outbreak 
recorded was July 1 8th or 19th, at the eastward, near Damariscotta, 
and at Topsham on July 30th, a boy was scalped. On August 5th, 
the Indians appeared in Gorham but withdrew without attempting 
any damage. On August 23d war was formally declared against 
the Indians. During the summer two companies had been em. 
ployed by the Government in scouting; one under Capt. Bean, 
whose " Instructions " arc preserved in a paper in the Massachusetts 
Archives, Vol. 72, p. 711, dated June 4, 1745, in which he is 
directed to march his company to York County and then to trans- 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 93 

port them to such parts of said County as need their protection, 
making two divisions, and appointing "some discreet person " as 
Sergeant over the second division ; one division was to " rendezvous " 
at Berwick and scout from thence to Saco river; the other to 
"rendezvous" at North Yarmouth, whither they are to be "trans- 
ported by sea," and from thence to range the woods to the 
block-house on Saco river. These routes are to be traversed back 
and forth once each week. The Capt. is charged to keep an exact 
journal of his scouting expeditions and to have the officer he 
appoints do the same; and these journals are to be left, at the end 
of each half-route, in the care of Nicholas Shapleigh at Berwick, 
Rishworth Jordan at Saco and Gilbert Winslow at North Yar- 
mouth, to be by these gentlemen forwarded with all speed to the 
Council at Boston. Parson Smith, under date of August ist, 1745, 
refers to a company under "one Capt. Bean" that "scouts from 
Saco to Presumpscot," and says "one Capt. Mocbun has another 
that scouts from Presumpscot to Brunswick;" besides there are 
other companies that scout along the frontier. 

Capt. Jonathan Beane of York was prominent in military affairs 
in the Province in these times, and later on had charge of posting 
the garrisons in Maine. Capt. " Mocbun," I have never been able 
to identify, and I regard the name as a probable error of the tran- 
scriber or printer of Parson Smith's Journal. 

On April 19, 1746, the Indians made their appearance across the 
river in the neighboring town of Gorham, where four of the 
families were living in their houses outside the fort, William 
Bryant's, John Reed's, Hugh McLellan's and Edward Cloutman's. 
The four men were outside their houses. Reed, going to his house 
from McLellan's where he had been to borrow a chain, was sud- 
denly beset by the Indians who sprang out of the bushes and 



94 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

overpowered him. Cloutman was at work in his field and although 
unarmed and taken by surprise, was captured only after a desperate 
struggle, in which three of the Indians, it is said, were disabled. 
Bryant and his son at work in the field, were killed, when they were 
likely to escape capture. The Indians then passed to Bryant's house 
where they killed his four younger children, the youngest an infant 
of two weeks, and carried his wife prisoner to Canada. Cloutman 
escaped from his captors the following November in company with 
a fellow prisoner named Dunbar, but they were both drowned 
while crossing a branch of Lake Champlain. Reed returned home 
after the war. Mrs. Bryant was sold as a servant to a Frenchman 
and never returned to Gorham. From this state of affairs in Gor- 
ham we can judge the condition of our own first settlers. Eight- 
een men, (not all heads of families however) were gathered into the 
fort. The men were 

Thomas Chute Thomas Bolton John Bodge 

Rev. John Wight Thomas Mayberry Stephen Manchester 

Abraham Anderson Gershom Manchester Seth Webb 
William Mayberry Curtis Chute William Bolton 

Samuel Webb David Webb John Webb 

John Farrow William Maxwell John Farrow Jr. 

It appears from the records that those who removed from town 
at the opening of the war were Caleb Grarram, Nathaniel Starbird, 
Samuel Elder, William Knight, Jonas Knapp, Hugh-Crague. 

Zerubbabel Hunnewell was serving in Capt. Berry's Company at 
Falmouth, together with Graffam, Starbird and Knight, but Hun- 
newell's family evidently remained in New Marblehead, as several 
children were born and baptized there during the time of the war; 
perhaps other families of those who enlisted remained. It is evi- 
dent from Capt. Hill's counter statement in his "Defence" below 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 95 

that there was something ambiguous at least in the declarations of 
the petitioners. 

The fort was looked upon as a place of security both by settlers 
and Indians, and in position and construction was probably one of 
the strongest of those built in the Province at this time. 

The settlers were evidently prudent and kept within the walls of 
the fort, or went forth guarded to their work. In this war the 
Indians seem to have desired to take prisoners instead of burning and 
destroying. Captives, in general, were more profitable in Canada 
than peltry. The first hostile demonstration made by the Indians 
against the settlement, of which any record remains, was upon 
April 14, 1747, when William and Joseph, the two sons of William 
Knights, were made prisoners, they being abroad unarmed, and 
taken by surprise near Saccarappa. The young men were carried 
to the Indian villages, were well treated by the Indians, and not 
long after returned home. August 27, following, a party of French 

- and Indians said to have been about thirty in number, entered the 
settlement and approached within a short distance of the fort, when 
they met the young men William Bolton and W T illiam Maxwell, 
who were well armed and were either scouting or hunting; they 
made a stout resistance, but Bolton having fired his musket, was 
immediately rushed upon and captured, while Maxwell, retreating 
backward, kept his gun presented, retaining his fire, and while receiv- 
ing several shots and a serious wound from the enemy, made good 
his retreat, till a relief party having heard the shots, came from the 
fort. This skirmish occurred about one-quarter of a mile south of 

• the fort, in the road. Bolton was carried to Canada and there sold 
as a servant to a French naval officer whose ship was soon after 
taken by an English man-of-war, and Bolton became servant to an 
English officer, where his situation becoming known to the Mass- 



96 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 



achusetts authorities, he was soon released upon the requisition of 
the Governor. 

The last demonstration of the Indians during this war, (common- 
ly known as the "fifth Indian War," and lasting from 1745 to 1 75 1) 
was upon September 22, 1750, when Seth Webb, son of Samuel, 
was captured by them upon home lot No. 23, and carried prisoner 
to Canada, and was returned after peace was declared in 1 75 1 . 

Life in the fort, during these years involved many hardships of 
which we have no account and very little apprehension. We 
know that the families lived there together; they worshipped regu- 
larly upon Sunday; more than a score of children were born and 
baptized there in these years; three or more couples were married, 
and ten persons died there. 

The organization of the military in Portland and vicinity may be 
fairly estimated from the following muster-roll: —

PETITION OF THE INHABITANTS OF NEW-MARBLEHEAD. 
To His Excellency William Shirley Esq r Commander in chief in and over His 

Majesties Province of y e Massachusetts Bay in New England and to the 

Honb le the Council and House of Representatives in General Court 

Assembled. 
The petition of us the Subscribers, Inhabitants of New Marblehead in the County 

of York and Province aforesaid. 

Humbly Showeth That Whereas 
Your Excellency & Honn rs , in your knowledge, wisdom and goodness have for 
our Incouragement, been pleased to vote pay & subsistence to eighteen men of y e 
town in Sumer, and nine in the W T inter Season for several years since the war w ch 
we gratefully acknowledge hath been a great kindness to us and without which 
we apprehend we could not have subsisted and held our possessions by reason of 
y e exposedness of our Settlements & by which we are hindered from making any 
great improvements of them and now to our Grief and Discouragement, Capt. 
Daniel Hills (who had the command of y e forces for y e year 1748) informs us his 
ord rs are to detain twenty men in the town aforesaid and Gorhamtown none of 
which to be Inhabitants, but all Western Men. and that we should have no pay or 
subsistence in the Winter Season Except we inlisted into the service as Western 
men ; accordingly six of our Inhabitants inlisted under him. Now if such his 
proceedings be agreeable to y (V intentions of y r Excellency & Honours, we shall lay 
our hand upon our Mouths, but if not we humbly pray y 1 ' Excellency & Honours 
would Exhibitt particular directions for our obtaining what y 1 ' Design was concern- 
ing us particularly ( as we apprehend we were all benefitted by y e aforesaid vote,) 
we heretofore have made an averidge of y e pay and subsistence among the whole 
of us, without being monthly entered & ingaged in y e service, it being for y e care of 
ye <: officer in making up his Muster Roll ; but by y e scheme or method proposed &

practiced by the said Capt. Hill none of us can be benefitted by y r grants but those 
inlisted ; which Administration we humbly conceive inconsistent with your inten- 
tions, wherefore (if it be so) we beg the interposition of y r Excellency & Honours 
for us that we may be dealt with according to your wise and gracious designs 
concerning us. And as two of our young men who have continued with us through 
the war are arrived at full age, and six of our former inhabitants who at y e begin- 
ning of y e war removed from us and listed in the service being afraid they should 
not be able to support themselves here are now returned with their families, we 
therefore likewise humbly pray your Excellency & Honours would add them to our 
number of Eighteen unto whom you have heretofore allowed full pay and Subsis- 
tence in the Summer Seasons and we shall as in duty bound ever pray &c

willing to comply with the condissions rather than to be put out of pay : but Cap n 

Hill declared to us that he could alow but four Inhabitants which four should be 

them that had pleasured him in going to Sebacook to look out a convenient Tract 

of Land for a Township as we have good reason to think rather than any views he 

had of serving the publick by searching for y e Enemye : & as soon as y e s d Capt n 

Hills had settled his company for y e winter w ch was about y e beginning of Dec r he 

& his Lutenant & Insigne & all his Western men went home to the Westard and 

none of them ever returned to us again till about y e 20 th of Feb'y last and y e Cap* 

did not come till some time in March & about ye 19: of this Instant May y e said 

Cap tn Hills took out his company (in y e very time when the Inhabitants should 

have planted there corn ) without the least prospect as we apprehend of being 

serviceable to the Public good leiving the garrison very weke and the Inhabitants 

that was left at home to work in theire feilds without any gards as he has always 

done ever since he has kept at our garrison this Spring & his sone that is in pay 

has not bin with us this five or six months.

CAPT. HILLS' DEFENCE. 
PETITION OF CAPT. DANIEL HILLS. 

To his Excellency William Shearly Esq r Capt 11 Genr 1 Commander in Chief in and 
over his Majesties province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England & to 
the Honn ble his Majesties Counsell & Representatives in Gen 1 Court 
Assembled 

Your humbel servent humbly showeth & myt beg leave of your Excellency & 
Hon rs to offer these few lines to your wise consideration in which i shall offer 
nothing but y e truth which I should not have troubled this Hon ble Cort with att this 
time if thair had not been two petitions sent to this as in complaint against my 
past conduct, one from Gorhamtown, the other from New-Marblehead, the former 
thay keep private, but the latter i saw, which sett things in but a poore light & so 
Represented as I am perswaded thay themselves if cald would not be willing to 
make oath to, hoping thay may be cald thair to. 

but I would take leave to inform your Excellency and Hon rs the truth and ralaity 
of my conduct relating to these places, sum time in the beginning of last May 
1748 I w.as sent from Newbury with a Capt ns Commission & ordered from the Capt n 
Gen 1 to Command the before-mentioned places and Saccrappa & to take into the 
Province pay 18 of the Inhabitance of New Marblehead : 14: of Gorhamtown & 
: 11 : of Sacrappa as Province Solders, and also 130: Westard men to jone me with 
theme for the safety & defence of these places & anoyment of the Enemy & to 
Scout as need Required; and according to those orders & in obidance to his Excel- 
lencys command directly i proseeded to these places & proceeded according to 
those just orders I had received : but was not joyned with the Westward men till 
ye :ig: day of June, when immediately on receiving them i posted :io: at each 
place before mentioned according to my orders and put the Westward men directly 
to watch and guard ; and all I required of y e Inhabitance Solders was only to take 
their turn with the Westard Solders to watch by knight & to take the gards on the 
Sabbath Days this was all the Duty I required of them for the whole Summer & 
keep the Westward Solders constantly to gard the Inhabitance Solders att thair 
work Except so many as was needfull to keep the forts; & I did not so much as 
put the Inhabitance Solders to one day's duty, but this would not give them con- 
tentment, for many of them, if I was not misinformed said to y e Westward Solders, 
that their Cap tn had no command of them nor could Require none & had nothing 
more to do with them than to give them allowance and git their wadges for them &

likewise told the Westward Men that thay were only sent to waight on them att 
their pleasure. Which things are of evil consequence and hard for Westward men 
to bare : When we spaired no pains by Day or by Knight for them and the safety 
of those places 

But to return, after the Inhabitance Solders had got throw thair Husbentry work, 
I was ordered to march into the woods att which time I ordered 14: of the Inhabi- 
tance Solders of New Marblehead, 14: of Gorhamtown and : 3 : of Sacrappa to 
goe this Martch of 10 Days : about the latter end of September we martcht with 
42 men these Inhabitance Solders mentioned, part of that number. Again in 
October I was ordered to martch in y e woods with : 60 : men for 3 weeks, when I 
took one Inhabitance Solder of Sacrappa and ordered 14: of New Marblehead 
and 4 of Gorhamtown to goe the Martch when they refused or neglected on a 
pretence to bee sick and so did not goe the martch except one from Sacrappa, 
making this excuse as they ever did that the Cort had excused them from Duty and 
I required no further duty of them because twas to no porpose and abought the 28 
of November I received orders from the Cap to Gen 1 to dismiss all my men except 
20 with myself and to follow Capt Jonathan Beans Direction herein & he thought 
best to keep in but 8 or 10 of the Inhabitance Solders & on the 29 of November I 
cald my men togather & offered more of the Inhabitance to be Solders than would 
except of it but I took into Province pay or continued 6 of the Inhabitance of New 
Marblehead and 5 of Gorhamtown: at which time 3 of Serg* John Phinneys had 
the offer to be continued solders but they all refused and sundry att each place 
and would not stand as Solders except I would make them [the] promos that thay 
should not doe duty as solders which I thought not proper to do but I told them 
plainly that if any duty was required of me I should expect that thay would doe 
duty Equall to Westward men but I did not know that any would be required more 
than just to keep the forts and as far as reason would allow I would favor them : 
but this was still thair reply, the Cort did not expect duty from them, this is the 
way with Inhabitance Solders. 

But having past throw the Winter without doing any more than keeping the forts 
& thay think this to be hard to garde att all insomuch that one of them have hired 
or agreed with a Westward man to take his place and will not be a solder though 
but one day duty in Eight or : 10 : is Required of them or him ; but I believe the same 
man has signed that petition that Mr Chute Brought to be in pay and to doe no 
duty att all. 

And as to what thay say to the Corts votes I never heard anything of it directly 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 103 

or indirectly till about y e 5, or 6 of March last past : and altho thay contend to bee 
Solders thay declare thay will not except they are excused from Duty, but this I 
Rest with your Excellency & Hon rs wise conduct. Give me but twenty Westward 
men and i will keep these two forts and anoyment of the Enemy, one Hundred 
pounds old tenner a year Cheper to have Every Inhabitance Removed than to 
have besides these Inhabitance put y e Province to more Charge than two Thousand 
p r year besids what men i ask for to keep them ; I have now but : 7 : Westward 
men to keep these two distant forts and if the Inhabitance Solders myt be 
excused from duty and I have orders to [put?] : 9 : into pay of the Inhabitance of 
New Marblehead I shall not have a man but myself to keep this fort if thay myt 
be excused from duty. 

Moreover I am ordered to scout every day which ( I think ) hard for this was 
never Required of King or Ruler for one man to scout alone for thair is not a man 
of y e Inhabitance Solders willing to scout a day. I think it a grate hardship ever 
to have an Inhabitance Solder att all : by reason all offesers complain of them and 
it Exposes the Westward Solders to duble Duty & offesers are contemned by them 
& thay Sett bad examples to all Government for thay will not bee under Govern- 
ment by which Reason the Westward Solders undergoe grate hardships and goe in 
grate dainger of their lives for want of good and obidant Solders. 

In short the Inhabitance Solders are never willing & hardly ever ready tis 
more work & pains to take care of twenty Inhabitance Solders than 100 Westward 
Solders, thay are but a trouble & charg and little or no profite to King or Country ; 
for if thay are ordered to stop thay dont mind it that hereby all are Exposed to 
dainger Did not Cap tn Burns att Brunswek loose his life last Spring for want of 
me? and sum others lost thair lives with him by reason y e Inhabitance Solders 
were taken up about thair work and many times I have scouted with but 13 : \\\ 
or : 5 : men because these Eastward Solders must bee att thair work and many 
more Instances might bee added of this kind but to Relate one half would be too 
tedious. Are Westward' men to plenty or of to little value that thair lives are 
nothing worth. 

But I humbly submit all to your Excellencies & Hon rs wise conduct with this 
humble desire to know wheather Inhabitance Solders are to doe duty or not or att 
least how mutch is to bee Required of them that so hereby further desputs may be 
prevented. 

All which is the desire & prayer of your unworthy but very Humble & Dutifull 
Servent Daniel Hills, Captain. 

Dated at New Marblehade, Aprill 4 th 1749 



104 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Moreover in Serg* Tho s Chutes & Companeys petition thay have declaired that 
I denyed to put any of the Inhabitance into pay & utterly excluded them unless 
they would enlist in Westward Mens places, which is utterly false: because I first 
offered the Inhabitance to the number of : 10: or 1 1 to bee Solders before I dis- 
missed any of the Westward Solders, that I might know how many of them would 
accept of it, att which time I told them I should expect them to do duty as well as 
the Westward Solders. He also says that six families have lately moved into that 
town and thairby the town is strengthened or to that purpose which is not so for 
thair is but two famelyes more than was last year & one of them is a Solder under 
myself, the other 14: are only men that came to work for awhile and i asked them 
if they designed to tarry y e Summer and thair answer was No for thair famelyes 
are att Falmouth & Elsewhere, and should not stay any longer thair than thay 
could work without dainger and if thay should hear that the enemy doe any 
Damage thay should be gone, for one of them have moved his famelye

STEPHEN MANCHESTER'S TESTIMONY. 
Stephen Manchester of full age testifieth & saith that I was under the command 
of Capt. Daniel Hills & that about the last of Sept. A. D. 1748 that I went with 
s d Hills, ten days march from Gorhamtown up to the head of Sebago Pond & so 
back into the woods which according to my Judgment was about eighty miles from 
the place where we first began our march & that there was no time spent in looking 
after lands for a Township but on the same day we landed our Whale boats wee 
returned directly home & Farther saith that the last Spring Capt. Hills & men have 
made it their constant practice to watch guard & scout round about the people in 
Marbelhead Town. He further saith that there were six of the Inhabitants of

On receiving this i desir youle as soon as possable keep your men dayly 

scoutiug back of the Inhabitance you have the care of to prevent thair being 

surprised by the Enemy for by what I can learn the prospect of peice is over and 



wee cant bee too upon our garde. Jf you have Western men enough for a small 
scout forDescovery without y e Inhabitance Solders, would have you leave them that 
thay may make what preparations they can to get their seed into the ground with-

REED FAMILY. 



BY P. M. REED. 




HE REED FAMILY of Phipsburg, descended from Col. 
Andrew Reed who came from Antrim County, Ireland, 
and settled in Boothbay about 1730. He was of Eng- 
lish descent though his family had lived in the north of Ireland 
some years previous to his emigration to this country. 

He had been a Colonel in the English Army, and was an Aid to 
General Wolf at Quebec. He was a man of marked character, 
resolute in performance of every duty, and a strict, devoted 
Presbyterian. 

An anecdote related of him in the annals of Maine illustrates 
his character. At one of the raids of hostile Indians upon Booth- 
bay, all the inhabitants fled excepting Andrew Reed. He sent his 
family to Boston and remained alone all winter in a log cabin. 
When asked by his friends on their return in the spring, if he had 
not been afraid, he replied, "Why should I? I was not alone, I had 
my bible and my God." His wife was Jane Murray, whom he 
married in Ireland, and through their influence the Rev. John 
Murray, Mrs. Reed's nephew, came to Boothbay and officiated for 
10

many years in the Presbyterian church to the great satisfaction of 
his hearers and the Synod; he was much esteemed at the time as 
a preacher and citizen. 

Andrew Reed died in 1763. He had three sons, Joseph, David 
and Paul; all of whom settled in Boothbay and vicinity. Paul, 
the youngest, became a sea captain at an early age, and during the 
Revolution commanded a Letter of Marque which captured many 
valuable prizes. He possessed a line tenor voice which was a 
source of pleasure to himself and his associates. When a lad he 
accompanied his father to Newburyport to hear Whitefielcl, the 
eloquent divine, and on one occasion Whitefield called him in 
front of his crowded congregation to lead the singing. 

Paul Reed married Marjory Death of Boothbay, in 1759. He 
died in Salem in 1795, and his wife died some years later. They 
had twelve children. 

Paul, the oldest, was a sea captain and died unmarried; Marga- 
ret married John McFarland of Boothbay; Jane married Joseph 
Campbell of Boothbay; Rosanna married Capt. Nathaniel Curtis 
of Boston; Mary married Capt. Samuel Oakman of Pittston; Mar- 
jory married Piper of Ohio; Elizabeth married Capt. John 

Agry of Hallowell; Sarah married Col. Jacob Auld of Boothbay; 
William Maxwell Reed was twice married; his first wife was 
Rosanna Auld of Boothbay; his second wife was Martha Rust of 
Boothbay, married Oct. 6, 181 1. He had a large family of chil- 
dren, but none are left in their native town. He was in command 
of the military forces at Boothbay in the war of 181 2; was a Cus- 
tom house officer for many years, and prominent in town affairs 
during his lone: life. 

Paul Reed's third son, Andrew, was born in 1765, and was adop- 
ted at an early age by his aunt, Mrs. John Parker, who lived one and

a half miles below Phipsburg Centre, on what is now known as the 
" Reed farm." Capt. Parker then lived in a timber house with 
flankers and watch-tower. This was taken down in 1825, the last 
one of the kind on the Kennebec river left of those erected for 
defence against the depredations of the Indians. Andrew Reed 
was prominent in military affairs ; was captain and colonel of the 
militia, and commanded a regiment called out to guard the mouth 
of the river in the war of 181 2. The remnant of his old fort is 
now seen at Cox's Head. Mr. Reed was Custom house officer for 
the lower Kennebec for thirty-three years. Like his grandfather 
Andrew, his bible and church were very dear to him. He was 
deacon of the Congregational church twenty-three years, and for 
many years senior deacon. He established and conducted Sunday 
afternoon prayer meeting more than forty years. He formed a choir 
and led the church singing when a young man and was the first to 
introduce the tuning-fork in that vicinity, which was so distasteful to 
the old Presbyterian element that they called it the " Devil's pitch 
pipe," and would leave the church while the choir sang. Col. 
Reed married Beatrice McCobb, May 12, 1793. She died in 1835. 
He died in 1848. Their children were — John, b. May 21, 1794; 
d. July 11, 1837. He was a school teacher for many years, filling 
that responsible position with enthusiasm, patience and ability, and 
at the same time was at the head of the school committee of the 
town. 

Samuel Denny Reed, b. Dec. 21, 1795, d. July 15, 1874, married, 
1866, Ellen Augusta Storer. He was an active business man, and 
had served as Major in the Militia. Rachel Loring Reed, b. Nov. 
x 7> 1 797, d. in Bath Feb. 16, 1869; m. Capt. Timothy Bachelder of 
Phipsburg, in Dec. 1838, leaving one daughter, Rebecca Perry 
Batchelder, who married P. H. M. Morrison. William Maxwell

Reed, b. March 14, 1800, m. Caroline Drummond of Phipsburg, 
Nov. 25, 1825, d. Jan. 12, 1866. He was esteemed for his high per- 
sonal character, his generous disposition and courtesy of manners, 
while he inspired confidence by his integrity, sagacity and enterprise. 
He managed his father's farm at an early age; later he moved to 
Phipsburg Centre and engaged in milling, also ship building as the 
successor of Parker McCobb, occupying the McCobb mansion. 
During his younger days he was active in military matters and was 
colonel of a regiment of militia. He represented Phipsburg for 
many years in the State Legislature, also serving as senator several 
terms. In 1744, he moved to Bath, and became a member of the 
Winter Street Church. He engaged in ship building and commer- 
cial pursuits in Bath; always interested and active in the affairs of 
the city and state. He was a devoted Whig and later a Republican ; 
was a member of the first board of Aldermen for the city of Bath; 
also served two terms on the Governor's Council and was one of the 
electors for the state for Lincoln's first term. For several years 
previous to his death, he was president of Sagadahoc Bank, also 
president of the Kennebec and Portland Railroad. 

Albert Reed, b. March 27, 1802, d. Feb., 1876, m. Abigail W.

was a successful business man, developing shrewdness and energy 
with good judgment in all his undertakings; beginning his career 
in Phipsburg as a merchant, he eventually joined the firm of Clark 
and Sewall in ship building at Bath, continuing with them and 
their successors until his death. He held several offices in Phips- 
burg, living on the Reed farm until a few years before his death 
when he moved to Bath. He was Captain in the militia early in 
life. He commenced without a whole dollar, and died worth three- 
fourths of a million.

ROBERT ANDREWS, WHO SETTLED AT IPSWICH 

MASS., ABOUT 1635, AND SOME OF HIS 

DESCENDANTS. 



BY II. F. ANDREWS, ESQ., AUDUBON, IOWA. 




FIRST GENERATION. 

OBERT ANDREWS. Captain Andrews came from 
Norwich, Norfolk County, England, as master and 
owner of the Ship "Angel Gabriel," in the early part of 
the year 1635. He had a sister Mary, who married Robert Burn- 
ham. Their three boys, John, Thomas and Robert, it is said, were 
put in charge of their Uncle Andrews, Master of the ship "Angel 
Gabriel," which was cast away at Pammaquid, in Maine, m a 
terrible storm, 15th of Aug., 1635; after which loss, Captain 
Andrews settled with his three nephews at Chebacco, in Massa- 
chusetts Bay. The Colonial records show that Robert Andrews, 
of Ipswich, was made free 6 May, 1635. He was a creditor of the 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 163 

estate of Joseph Andrews. Licenced by the General Court to 
keep an ordinary — an inn — Sept. 3, 1635, and in 1636 was allowed 
to sell wine by retail. Licenced to draw wine at Ipswich in 1640. 

The name is spelled variously in the Colonial record; Andrews, 
Andras, Andros and Androuse. 

There is an ambiguity as to the dates above given. If he sailed 
from England early in 1635, was cast away in August and after- 
wards settled at Chebacco, it is difficult to see how he was made 
free in Ipswich, May 6, 1635. There is evidently a mistake in 
dates. He probably made the voyage and was shipwrecked earlier 
than stated. 

Chebacco, his place of residence, was in Ipswich. 

His will, made March 1, 1643, proved January 26, 1644, mentions 
his wife Elizabeth, his eldest son, John and a son Thomas; grand- 
daughter Elizabeth, daughter of William Franklyn, of Boston; 
grand-son Daniel, son of Daniel Hovey, of Boston; and nephews 
John, Thomas and Robert Burnham. 

A contract mentions his daughter Alice, wife of William Frank- 
lyn, of Boston. Daniel Hovey, Senior, of Boston, mentions his 
wife, Abigail Andrews, sister of Thomas, in the settlement of the 
estate of the latter, Sept. 27, 1683. His children: 

1 Abigail. 2 Alice. 3 John. 4 Thomas. 

SECOND GENERATION. 

Abigail Andrews married Daniel Hovey, Senior, of Boston, 

more than forty years prior to Sept. 27, 1683. Her children: 

1 Daniel. 2 John. 3 Thomas. 4 Joseph. 5 Nathaniel. 6 A daughter — name 
unknown. 

Alice Andrews married William Franklyn, of Boston. Had a 
daughter Elizabeth, who was the wife of George May in 1662, and 



164 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

the wife of John Glover, of Swansey, Mass., in Sept., 1683. He 
was formerly of Boston. 

John Andrews and wife, Sarah, (?) of Chebacco in Ipswich. 
Died intestate. Inventory of his estate taken May 23, 1662. His 
brother Thomas was administrator of the estate. He was known 
as the Corporal. His children: 

1 John. 2 Sarah Counon. 

Thomas Andrews, known as the schoolmaster, died unmarried, 
intestate, July 10, 1683. 

THIRD GENERATION. 

John Andrews and wife Judith, (?) lived at one time in Salem, 
Mass. In 1675, was a Committee to lay out land near Ipswich. 
Was appointed Lieutenant of 3d Company at Chebacco, Ipswich, 
1683: was fined £30 and imprisoned for opposing in town meeting 
the arbitrary measures of Gov. Sir Edmund Anclros, in 1689; was 
tything-man in 1697. His will dated March 13, 1705, proved May 
17, 1708, mentions his wife, but not her name; in which he is 
called John Androuse, Seniour. The witnesses to will and the 
Court records call him Lieutenant John Andrews. His children : 

1 John, eldest son. 

2 William, second son. 

3 Thomas. 

4 Joseph. 

Elizabeth, born March 9, 1684; wife of James Giddinge. 

FOURTH GENERATION. 

William Andrews and wife Margaret Woodward, married Oct. 
21, 1672. Appears to have died intestate. The agreement for 
settlement of his estate signed by his widow and children, dated 
March, 1 7 1 5, names him as Ensign William Andras, of Chebacco, 
Ipswich, County of Essex, &c. It mentions his children:

8 Issachur, b. December 25, 1744. 

9 Abraham, b. September 6, 1746. 

10 Ruammi, b. December 13, 1749. 

The writer was told by his grandfather, Isaac Stearns Andrews, 
about 1868, when then an old man nearly eighty years old, a son of 
Abraham 6 , son of Solomon 5 , that he had been well acquainted with 
some of his uncles, the sons of Solomon 5 Andrews. He said that 



106 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

his uncles Isaac and Am mi settled at Hillsboro, N. H. Stephen 
was a sea captain, wealthy and had a residence at Blue Hill, 
Maine. He had a son Samuel, who was a Lieutenant in Captain 
Hutchins' Company in the war of the Revolution. He married 

Elder, of Buxton, Maine, and settled in Lovell, Maine, soon 

after the war. He was known there as Captain Samuel Andrews, 
being the second Captain of the Militia of that town, where he 
died many years ago, leaving eight children, all born at Lovell, 
who married there. He has many descendants. His widow sur- 
vived many years, dying only a few years ago, over one hundred 
years old. She had been blind more than thirty years. 

Nehemiah and Issachur settled at Billerica, Mass., Edmund at 
Carlisle, Mass. Abraham married Esther, daughter of Hon. Isaac 
Stearns, of Billerica, and lived at Concord, Mass. When the war 
broke out, he entered the army a Private and served all through 
the war; was promoted to the rank of Captain. He settled at 
Lovell, Maine, about 1788, and died there about 1823, leaving 
numerous descendents. 

He was the first settler of that town with a few others, and the 
first Captain of the Militia there.

HIS old church was erected A. D. 1764, and finished, all 
except the steeple, in 1767. In 1792, Abiel Wood and 
Henry Hodge built the steeple and purchased the bell 
which was made by Paul Revere, of Boston. This bell has tolled 
for the death of every President of the States, since Washington. 
The parish builders were Hon. Jona. Bowman, Hon. Thomas Rice, 
Jonathan Williamson, Moses Davis and Stephen Merrill, all from 
Newbury, Mass. The church was taken down in 1840, and the 
present edifice erected in its place, where the same old bell still 
swings to call its parishioners to the house of worship.

MISS MARY, 

dau r of 

M r James Merrill Jun r 

& M rs Salome, his wife, 

died Jan. 29, 1807 : 

sEt. 21. 

Farewell my friends, dry up your tears ; 

I must lie here till Christ appears. 

What faults thou see'st in me take care to shun, 

There's work within thyself that should be done. 



JACOB MERRILL 

DIED 

March 1835;

And first of all I assign my immortal soul to 

God who gave it, and my body to the earth to be 

buried in a decent and christian like manner.

CALEB S. MERRILL 

DIED 
Oct. 5, 1849, 

JE. 24. 

As the star of morning 
Which p'ades not in the east, 
But melts away in Heaven, 
He sunk in peaceful rest. 



SAMUEL M. MERRILL, 

DIED 
Oct. 12, 1849, 

" Dearest husband thou hast left us, 

Here thy loss we deeply feel ; 
But 'tis God that hath bereft us, 

He can all our sorrows heal." 



WM. N. MERRILL 

DIED 

Oct. 4, 1850,

But is he dead : no, no, he lives, 

His happy spirit flies 
To heaven above, and there receives 

The long-expected prize.

Here pensive reader, make a moment's pause — 
Think how precarious every human joy: 

See nature's bloom disorb'd by nature's cause, 
And death releasing what it can't destroy.

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE. 



INDIAN TROUBLES AND MILITARY AFFAIRS. 



REV. G. M. BODGE, EAST BOSTON, MASS. 




[Continued from page 96.] 

HE foregoing papers show plainly the feeling which 
existed in the minds of the inhabitants against the 
arrangement of the General Court which placed an out- 
side company in their garrison, and Capt. Hills in authority over 
them. It is to their opposition to his authority, and to the arrange- 
ment by which they were deprived of allowance for military ser- 
vice, that we owe our knowledge of the facts declared in these old 
documents. 

According to the order of the Council, Capt. Hills' muster-rolls 
were retained and presented by the committee to whom this affair 
was committed. 

The following muster-roll shows the constitution of Capt. Hills' 
company during the first six months of his command upon this 
part of the frontier. As will be seen, he adhered to the previous 
arrangement, and kept eighteen men of New Marblehead, counting 
Rev. John Wight who acted as Chaplain, Sergt. Thomas Chute, Z. 
Hunnewell and the two Knights as belonging in the New Marble- 
head quota. It was because of the change made by Capt. Hills, 
and his retaining only six in pay, as shown above, that the trouble 
occurred in the winter of 1748-9. Following is the Roll:

During the winter and spring of 1748-9, Capt. Hills continued in 
command, with his company mostly of Westward, (i. e.) Massachu- 
setts men, with but six of the Inhabitants of New Marblehead 
borne upon his roll. Several of his men, however, were absent and 
were allowed to employ inhabitants to fill their places. There was 
some trouble about the payment of these, Capt. Hills probably 
refusing to sign vouchers except for the regularly enlisted men. 
The following item from the Council Records of 1749, show how 
the matter was adjusted. 

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AUG. 1 7, 1 749. 

"Voted, that the Pay and Subsistence due to the five Inhabitants of Gorham 
Town & New Marblehead, who did the duty of five Western men while absent 
from their duty, together with the other Inhabitants Soldiers born on Capt. Daniel 
Hills Muster Roll be paid to Capt. Moses Pierson to be by him equally distributed 
among the s (l Inhabitants-soldiers according to the Order of this Court. " 

In June and July, 1749, a temporary peace was arranged with 
the Eastern Indians by which, for a time, our settlers were relieved 
from their long fear of attack, and were enabled to secure partial 
crops, and were afforded the coveted privilege of working upon 
their land and clearing and improving their farms. It was a year 
of great drought however, and all over the colonies there was con- 
sternation and the dread of a famine, instead of the terror of the 
Indians; for their entire dependence was upon the product of the 
farms. The drought broke about the middle of July, and there 
was widespread rejoicing and public thanksgiving when abundant 
refreshing rains continued falling in all parts of the country: 

The negotiations for a treaty of peace which had been going on 



Mai7ie Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 181 

during the summer, resulted in a general conference of the Com- 
missioners of the several colonies with the Indians at Falmouth, 
October 14, 1749. The chiefs of the Penobscot, Norridgewock and 
St. Francois tribes were the representatives of the Eastern Indians 
and the leader was Foxus, chief of the Penobscots. This treaty 
gave new courage to the settlers, and they began to venture out 
from the garrison to their own homes. New settlers began to 
come in, and those who had removed, returned. But the causes of 
trouble were not removed, and by the beginning of winter, compli- 
cations had arisen in many places upon the frontier. In December, 
a very serious quarrel occurred at Wiscasset, between the English 
and the Indians, in which the English were plainly at fault; and in 
the affray one Indian was killed and two others severely wounded. 
This at once kindled the fires of hostility in the eastern tribes, and 
the authorities at once took measures to conciliate them. The 
offending men were denounced and three of them, viz: Obadiah 
Albee, Richard and Benjamin Holbrook, were arrested and brought 
to Falmouth and imprisoned; but a mob of their sympathizers res- 
cued them. The excitement was so high between the friends of 
good order and the disorderly, that a jury could not be found to 
condemn the men, when for their own safety they had surrendered 
to the constables. The Judges and the better classes, condemned 
Albee as a murderer, but the jury, in the face of the plainest evi- 
dence, acquitted him. The Government then removed the others 
to Middlesex County for trial ; but there is no record showing that 
their trial ever took place, and they were probably finally released. 
Many grievances like this, and the constant encroachments of the 
frontier English settlers, among whom were found many lawless 
adventurers, served to embitter the Indians; and by midsummer, 
1750, all the eastern tribes were ready for war and the settlers were

hurrying into their garrisons. By the middle of September, the 
Indians made their appearance in the vicinity of Falmouth; and it 
was rumored that a large body of Canada Indians had reinforced 
them. The following papers give account of their appearance at 
New Marblehead on September 21, 1750:

GOVERNOR JOHN HUBBARD. 



By COL. THOS. H. HUBBARD, 

In Maine Biographical Encyclopedia. 




OHN HUBBARD was born in the town of Readfield, 
Me., March 22, 1794. His parents moved to that town 
from New Hampshire, their native State, in 1784. They 
were among the pioneers of the province. His mother, Olive 
Wilson, was born in Brentwood, N. H., in 1761, and was a woman 
of marked individuality of character. She died Oct. 20, 1847, at 
the age of eighty-six years. His father, John Hubbard, was born 
in Kingston, N. H., 1759, and like his father, was a physician. On 
removing to Maine he took with him his widowed mother, Joanna 
Hubbard, who died here in 1807, aged seventy-four years. His 
death occurred April 22, 1838. 

His life was the laborious one of a country doctor in a new and 
sparsely settled country, where journeys are long and receipts 
small. In such a community almost every man adds the occupa- 
tion of farmer to his other pursuits, and Dr. Hubbard was not an 
exception to this rule. For the greater part of his life he carried 
on a farm, which, as his sons grew to be young men, was committed 



186 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

to their care. He was esteemed in his profession as a practitioner 
of skill and sound judgment. He occupied also a prominent 
position in the community where he lived, and at one time repre- 
sented his district in the General Court of Massachusetts. But 
his health failed near middle life ; his property was lost or spent, 
and he was unable to give his large family much aid in obtaining 
education more than the common schools afforded. There were 
twelve children in this family, eight daughters and four sons ; of 
these two died in childhood. 

John, the subject of this sketch, named for his father, was the 
eldest son. As a boy he was remarkable for physical strength and 
activity. These qualities were often tested in the wrestling matches 
and rough athletic sports that served as recreation for boys of that 
day, and on several occasions availed to rescue from drowning his 
less powerful or expert companions. Above all he was conspicuous 
then as always for independence and frankness of character, and 
for absolute sincerity. He managed his father's farm when but a 
mere boy; but this labor encroached upon the time which he felt 
could be more profitably given to the cultivation of his mind, for 
at the age of sixteen the only instruction he had received was at 
the district schools in the winter months, and during an attendance 
of ten months at an academy. But already he had marked out for 
himself a life in which his talents might be turned to better account 
than in the course which seemed to lie before him. He had rightly 
decided that the best equipment for a successful business in life 
was a good mental training and a thorough education. So when 

CD C7 O 

at the age of sixteen, his father unable to aid him at the centres of 
learning, proposed that he divide his time between the work on the 
farm and the study of medicine at home with his father, he declined, 
for the reason that he needed a more thorough education as the 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 187 

foundation for a professional superstructure, and that until the 
foundation was determined he could not decide what the edifice 
should be. 

Following the course on which he had resolved, he devoted such 
time as he could obtain in the intervals of labor to the study of 
mathematics and the languages, without aid or instruction, and 
thus continued for three years longer on the farm. In the fall of 
1813, then in his twentieth year, he left home. His equipment for 
making his own way in the world was an abundant force of mind 
and character, robust health, and ample hope. His property was 
limited to fifteen dollars, and a horse given him by his father, who 
could afford no ampler outfit. Thus furnished, he rode to Han- 
over, N. H.; resolved to know the requirements for entering Dart- 
mouth College, and then to set about the work of complying with 
them. From Dartmouth he rode to Albany, N. Y., where he made 
an engagement as instructor in a private family residing near the 
city. Here he continued until the following summer, and used his 
time so well that, beside discharging his duties as instructor, to the 
satisfaction of his pupils and their parents, he had completed the 
preparatory studies, and those of the first and second college years, 
so far that he was then able to enter Dartmouth in 18 14 as a mem- 
ber of the class of 1816, in the third term of the sophomore year. 
He graduated with his class in 1816, maintaining a front rank, and 
especially distinguishing himself in mathematics. Depending 
wholly upon his own exertions, he was compelled to teach during 
a portion of his college years, and was necessarily somewhat in 
debt at the end of his course. 

With resolution nowise abated, John Hubbard again applied 
himself to teaching, in order to discharge his obligations, and to 
obtain money needed to educate himself for the medical profession, 



188 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

to which at this time he had finally decided to devote the labor of 
his life. 

With this in view he taught, as principal, the academy at Hal- 
lowell, Me., for about two years, and afterwards taught in Virginia 
for about the same length of time. Never diverted frem his settled 
purpose by delays or obstacles, he was able, in 1820, to enter upon 
a thorough course of medical study at the Philadelphia Medical 
School of the University of Penn., which afforded the best oppor- 
tunities for the instruction he desired. He remained here two 
years, securing his diplomas as doctor of medicine and as fellow of 
the Philadelphia Medical School in April, 1822. 

He returned immediately to Virginia, where as a teacher he had 
made many warm friends, and there, in Dinwiddie County, he com- 
menced the practice of his profession. He remained in Virginia 
in successful practice seven years, until 1829, when he determined 
to change his residence, in part from consideration of health, but 
chiefly because he preferred for his children the atmosphere and 
influence of a free state. In July, 1825, he had married Miss Sarah 
H. Barrett, of Dresden, Me. One child born of this marriage had 
died in Virginia; one, a daughter, remained. 

The parents of husband and wife were still living in their native 
state, and in their advanced age needed the attentions of which 
distance incident to that time deprived them. Urged by these 
considerations, Dr. Hubbard decided to make his home at the 
North, and before completing the change, to spend a year in the 
medical schools and hospitals of Philadelphia, to perfect his skill as 
an anatomist and surgeon ; this was in keeping with the character 
of the man that he should wish to excel in his chosen profession, 
and insist upon attaining the most thorough knowledge of whatever 
he professed to know. His wife and young daughter were neces-

sarily separated from him during this period of advanced student 
life, but this separation ended in 1830 when he took up his resi- 
dence at Hallowell, Maine. Here Dr. Hubbard remained for the 
rest of his life, where his large experience, vigorous intellect and 
immense energy of mind and body gave him almost from the outset 
a leading professional standing throughout the State. That he 
exposed himself without reserve to disease, as well as to toil, is a 
matter of course. That he served without regard to compensation 
or the ability of his patient to make it, is likewise true. Though 
Dr. Hubbard was devoted to his profession, he had always been an 
attentive observer of public affairs, and ardently attached to those 
principles of true government by the aid of which, in this country, 
every man could rise to the level of his merit. His convictions 
led him to unite with the Democratic party in Maine, although 
self-interest would have counselled association with the Whigs, 
then in the ascendancy. In the opinion of Dr. Hubbard the 
Democratic party kept clearest in the foreground, and was itself 
most earnestly committed to the principles vital to the Republic — 
absolute equality of all citizens, unchanging opposition to all pref- 
erences or privileges of class, and perfect loyalty to the Constitution 
of the United States. 

In 1843, quite unexpectedly to himself, Dr. Hubbard was elected 
to the Senate of Maine, though his own was one of the strongest 
Whig districts. Without previous experience as a legislator or 
practice as a debater, he immediately took a prominent position in 
the Senate, and at once applied himself with his accustomed 
energy to the business before him, sparing no pains to obtain a 
thorough knowledge of the varied matters which came up for dis- 
cussion. He seldom addressed the senate at length, but when 
he participated in the debates he always commanded attention by 



190 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

a compact and logical presentation of the question at issue, and 
by a frank and independent expression of his views. 

In 1849 Dr. Hubbard was nominated by the Democratic party 
as its candidate for governor of the State, and was elected to that 
office over the opposing candidates. In 1850 Governor Hubbard 
was again put in nomination by his party and was elected for a 
second term. At this time the Maine Legislature commenced its 
session in May, but an act approved Aug. 21, 1850, provided for 
submitting to the people a constitutional amendment fixing the 
annual meeting on the first Wednesday of January, and also pro- 
vided that the governor and other state officers elected for the 
political year commencing on the second Wednesday of May, 185 1, 
should hold their offices till Jan. 1853. By this amendment, Gov. 
Hubbard's term of office was extended from May, 1852, to January, 
1853. Among the measures to which he early directed the atten- 
tion of the Legislature were the establishment of a reform school 
for juvenile offenders, distinct from the state prison, and from con- 
tact with the older class of criminals; the establishment of an 
agricultural school; provisions for a college or* seminary for the 
education of females in the more advanced departments of study; 
suitable endowment for academies and colleges, and a proper system 
for the instruction of teachers. 

He laid especial stress upon the subject of education, to which 
he always assigned that first importance due to it in a country 
where the will of the majority makes the law; and where if the 
majority be ignorant or vicious, the laws must take a similar com- 
plexion. He urged with constant earnestness the acquisition by 
the State the public lands within its own limits, the encouragement 
of settlers, and the development of the northeastern portion of the 
State. The result of his efforts was to give a marked impetus to

the settlement of the public lands, and the improvement of the 
richest agricultural district in Maine. The subject of state action 
which most absorbed public attention during Governor Hubbard's 
administration was temperance legislation, and he signed, as gover- 
nor, the first act known as the " Maine Law." 

During the period of Governor Hubbard's administration the 
national question which overshadowed all others was slavery exten- 
sion. His course was consistent with the views he had always 
entertained. Referring to the institution of slavery, he said, " it is 
so palpable and flagrant an invasion of natural rights as to excite 
abhorrence, and to insure its eventual overthrow." 

Upon retiring from the gubernatorial chair he resumed at once 
the active practice of his profession, but in 1857 he was appointed 
a special agent of the Treasury Department to examine the several 
custom-houses in Maine looking to the economical enforcement of 
the revenue laws. In 1858 his services were extended through all 
the New England States. In 1859 he was appointed by the Presi- 
dent, and confirmed by the senate, as Commissioner under the 
Reciprocity Treaty concluded between the United States and Her 
Brittanic Majesty in 1854. One object of this treaty was to settle 
disputes arising from the fishing business carried on by the inhabi- 
tants of the State and of the British Provinces in their adjacent 
waters. Governor Hubbard held this position for two years, during 
which he made careful examination of the coast-line from Maryland 
to the northern shore of the St. Lawrence, and joined the commis- 
sioner appointed by Great Britain in defining, for the purposes of 
the treaty, the mouths of the various rivers within those limits. 
This was the last official position he occupied. The late years of 
his life were saddened by the events of the war, in which his eldest 
son lost his life. The death of this son, who fell in May, 1863, was 



192

a sorrow the father, then advanced in years, could never wholly 
overcome. He lived indeed to see the success of the North, but 
not the complete results in the harmonious relations between North 
and South, and the great material development of the Southern 
country. His death occurred Feb. 6, 1869. 

In person Governor Hubbard was a man of impressive appear- 
ance, — six feet and two inches in height, erect and well formed, 
with large head, black hair and eyes, and a commanding presence. 
His tastes and habits were simple, and democratic in the best sense 
of that word. His most prominent traits were his absolute love of 
justice and his courageous adherence to his convictions of right. 
Warmly attached to the principles of government by the people, 
and well equipped for their service, he was permitted in public 
office to contribute much to that moral and material development 
of his own State which has made her influence felt in strengthen- 
ing and perpetuating the Republic.

MOULTON FAMILY. 



BY AUGUSTUS F. MOULTON. 



{Continued from p. fjo.] 

SOME DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM MOULTON, OF 
HAMPTON, N. H. 

(i) William Moulton, born in Ormsby, Norfolk County, Eng- 
land, about 1 617, married Margaret, daughter of Robert and Lucia 
[Lucy] Page, with whose family he came to New England. His 
age is given as twenty years in his "examination" before leaving 
England April 11, 1637. They landed probably at Boston, thence 
he and the Pages went to Newbury, Mass. where it seems they 
remained something over a year before joining the new settlement 
at Winnacunnett now Hampton, N. H., in 1639. At that place he 
took up his permanent abode, settling quite near Thomas and John 
Moulton. He died April 18, 1664. His will which is found in 
Essex Co., Mass., Probate Records, Vol. 2, pages 9, 10 and 1 1, bears 
date March 8, 1663 [4]. He declares himself to be at that time 
"sick and weak of body." It is evident that Mr. Moulton was a 
man of more than ordinary ability and force of character. Coming 
as he did to a new country before arriving at his majority, presum- 
ably bringing little with him and dying at the early age of forty- 
seven, he left what was, for those times a large estate — a double 
mansion in one of the best locations in the new township with 
"orchyd," tillage land, "medow" and marshes together with per- 
sonal estate to no inconsiderable amount. All this was distribu- 
ted by his will with the curious particularity characteristic of the 
old country. This lengthy and formal document is appended in

that his early affection for her had suffered no abatement in the 
lapse of years. An imaginative mind can find much both of

The following votes of the church were left by the Rev. Mr. 
Willard: 

Friday, August 14, 1730, Mr. Haley, voted Moderator by the 
brethren of the Church. 

1 The settlements on both sides oJ Saco River, which, on account of Richard Vines and 
his companions wintering in 1616, in the bay now called the "Pool," had been known as Winter 
Harbor, 2 were in 1653 organized as Saco; but in 171S they were incorporated as Biddeford, and 
remained under one municipal government until 1762, when the part east of the river was incor- 
porated as Pepperellborough, named for Sir William Pepperell; and this name was changed to Saco 
in [805. 

The location of this church is about three miles from Biddeford City Hall toward the Pool. 

A.K.P.M. 

2 Hubbard in his history of the Indian War says it was so called, because "formerly the property 
oi one [no. Winter whose name it still retains," manifestly an error as John Winter of Richmond's 
Island is the onlv person of the name here previous to this. A.K.P.M.

New England; was minister at Groton; his son John, father of our minister, took his college degree

TO THE PUBLIC. 



COMMUNICATED BY WM. MERRILL, ESQ., OF TOPSHAM. 




T A MEETING of the Committee of Inspection, in 
Topsham, on the fifth day of September, 1775, called to 
enquire into the conduct of some of the voters with respect 
to their choosing town officers in March last, it was moved to en- 
quire whether said voters had shown themselves friends or foes to 
the liberty of the country, in choosing town officers who had openly 
declared to be for receiving the late acts of Parliamant for enslav- 
ing the country. On the said motion, Mr. John Winchel, one of 
said committee, said he had voted for men that he knew were 
against the country, and he would do it again if he lived until next 
March meeting, and things stood in the town as they were now. 
Mr. James Fulton, another of said committee, who had been sent to 
the General Court as a representative, being asked if it was agree- 
able to the resolves of the Congress to choose men into office who 
were enemies to the country, he said as there were two parties in 
the town, one for and the other against the Emerson cause, it was, 
in his opinion, just to choose some of both parties. The opposite 
party had not a fair chance. Mr. John Reed, Jr.. another of said 
committee, said, in his opinion, it was not right to meddle with such 
affairs. The whole committee, consisting of seven and but six 
being present, the matter dropt. 

At the above mentioned march meeting, the moderator was a 
perfect Tory, and Mr. John Hunter was voted in Town Clerk, and 
Capt. Thomas Wilson a Selectman, altho' both of them have de- 
clared in Town meeting that they did not approve of any Continen- 
tal or provintial Congresses, neither would they adhere to any of 



208

their resolves, and Mr. Fulton, another of the Selectmen, declared 
in town meeting that he did not approve of the Provintial Con- 
gress. 

At a Town meeting, march 14th., 1775, called to see who would 
stand by the resolves of the Congress, and who would not, the fol- 
lowing persons openly declared they did not approve of the Pro- 
vintial Congress; viz.: —

THE SOMMONS TO NEW ENGLAND. 



While turning over some manuscripts of the time of Charles the First, at the 
office of the Public Records in London, I chanced upon an old ballad which bore 
upon it the endorsement : " C/ias. i, about May, 1634." It was entitled : "A propper 
Ballad called the Sommons to New England." Upon reading it, I was im- 
pressed with its peculiar style, so like that of rollicking Tom Morton, the author 
of the " New English Canaan," whose dislike of the Puritans was similar to that of 
a certain gentleman to the aqua benidicta, and who could never let an occasion for 
abusing them pass. Morton was a strange medley of the pedant and the black- 
guard, and the writings he has left us are strongly flavored with his personality. 
At the moment, I had no means of verifying the handwriting of the manuscript, but 
copied it and took a tracing 1 of several lines to study at my leisure. The ballad is 
written in a style of chirography rarely to be met with in writings of the date to 
which it belongs ; a most clerkly hand, as clear and readable indeed as most 
modern handwritings. When comparing my tracings from the London manuscript 
with a tracing I possess of Morton's 2 writing, I find the style the same, and am still 
more impressed with the belief that the " The Sommons to New England " is a 
veritable production of Morton's muse. It will be remembered that Morton at the 
date named was in England, actively engaged in a warfare against the New 
England Puritans.

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE. 



INDIAN TROUBLES AND MILITARY AFFAIRS. 



REV. G. M. BODGE, EAST BOSTON; MASS. 






{Continued from page i8j.\ 

HE FOREGOING letters relate to the capture of Seth, 
son of Samuel Webb, the first schoolmaster of New 
Marblehead, who settled upon Lot No. 23 in 1744, but 
later upon No. 27. This attack took place doubtless upon No. 23, 
and was the last actual demonstration of the Indians against the 
settlement for several years. Young Webb was carried to Canada 
by the Indians, but upon the restoration of peace returned home. 
Frequent attacks occurred in other outlying settlements for nearly 
a year; and as late as June 8, 1751, a strong party killed Job Burnal 
in Falmouth, and about the 23d of June following, they assaulted 
" New Meadows," and took captive seven of the inhabitants, "three 
Hinkleys, two Whitneys, Purrington and Lombard," says Parson 
Smith. 

During the next month a treaty was held and peace effected with 
the Indians which lasted until the opening of hostilities in the late 
fall of 1754, provoked by the constant encroachments of the English 
upon the rights and privileges of the Indians; the French actively 
taking part with the Indians, and France and England thus becom- 
ing engaged in a war which finally resulted in the complete con- 
quest of all the French possessions in America. 

During these years of peace some degree of prosperity had 
returned to the settlers of New Marblehead, and new settlers had 
come in, and most of those who had retired to safe quarters had 
returned and taken up their claims. 



226 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

In the meantime the outlying grants of New Gloucester and 
New Boston (now Gray), had been settled, so that New Marblehead 
was no longer a frontier settlement, except to the North, and on 
the line of the rivers and lakes. And while the settlers felt some- 
what more secure from their knowledge that the Indians did not 
dare to attack them so confidently when these frontier settlements, 
with their block-houses were behind them, and their guards might 
follow upon their rear, or cut off their retreat; yet the settlers knew 
that in fact the enemy could easily steal unperceived by the guards, 
and skulking through the deep woods and swamps, suddenly appear 
in the midst, ready to cut off any unwary or unguarded laborer 
who should venture too far from the block-house. 

In the winter of 1754-5 hostilities again commenced between the 
English and French settlements and, as usual, the Indians, in 
prowling bands, appeared at the frontier settlements as soon as the 
spring advanced so that the trees should be covered with leaves, 
and afford securer hiding-places from which they might safely 
shoot, or rush forth and capture any unguarded ones, and in which 
they might safely hide from pursuit. 

In May, 1756, the Indians began their assaults upon various 
frontier towns at the eastward, and North Yarmouth, Gray and 
New Gloucester nearer home. The settlers of New Marblehead 
had profited by past experience and had put their settlement in 
much better condition of defence than formerly. The fort had 
been strengthened, and three of the settlers houses had been forti- 
fied by being surrounded with a strong stockade, and with a tower 
or sentry-box of hewn timber two stories high attached. These 
towers were built with the upper story jutting over the lower, and 
with a tier of port-holes from which a musket could be aimed to 
cover any approach of an enemy from any direction. Large spaces 



Maine Historical and Ge7iealogical Recorder. 227 

had been cleared around the houses so that it was difficult for an 
enemy to approach unseen by day or night, when a watch had 
been set. The first of these fortified houses was upon Lot No. 18, 
some two hundred rods northwest from the fort upon the main 
road, and belonged to Thomas Mayberry. The second was below 
the first about the same distance upon Lot No. 52, belonging to 
Thomas Bolton; and the third was on Lot No. 61, near Inkhorn 
brook, and was owned by Caleb Graffam, the settler next the 
Falmouth line. 

Our settlement, thus well fortified, was not attacked during this 
year, though Indians were known to be in the near vicinity. 
During the following winter a party of Indians entered the town 
and captured Joseph Knights again, in the woods near the river, 
about half-way between "Horse-beef falls" and Little falls. Young 
Knights had lived with the Indians sometime before and had 
learned something of their ways and language, and was now taken 
by them to their settlements towards the north upon the upper 
waters of the Androscoggin. During his captivity he heard the 
Indians planning a general descent upon the new settlements 
around Casco Bay, and found that they were collecting the scatter- 
ed bands of various tribes to one rendezvous. At the beginning of 
May they began their advance towards the towns, and on the night 
of May 7th, 1756, came to the banks of the Androscoggin river, 
and being tired with a long day's march they built a fire and 
camped down about it for the night. It seems that the small party 
having charge of Knights were somewhat careless of their prisoner, 
their only precaution being to place him between two of the men 
to sleep upon the ground by the fire. The Indians all soon fell 
into a heavy sleep, and Knights watching his opportunity crawled 
from between his guards and stole away without their notice, and

after much wandering about, having to practice many cunning 
devices to baffle his pursuers, and suffering much from hunger 
while lying concealed by day, he came into the settlement at North 
Yarmouth on the morning of the ioth, and gave the alarm of the 
large war party and their intention of destroying the plantations 
from Brunswick to Saco. Messengers were at once despatched to 
the neighboring settlements, and at Falmouth Parson Thomas 
Smith writes in his Journal under date May ioth, 1756: 

"This morning we are alarmed with young Knights who escaped from the 
Indians three days ago, and got to North Yarmouth this morning, who brings news 
of one hundred and twenty Indians coming upon the frontier who are to spread 
themselves in small scouts from Brunswick to Saco." 

Upon the receipt of the alarm three companies were immediately 
organized in and about Falmouth, and on the nth went out in 
search of the Indians. These companies were commanded by 
Capt. James Milk, Capt. Samuel Skillin and Capt. Isaac Ilsley. A 
company was also made up from the companies at North Yarmouth 
and New Casco, and with Knights as guide marched to the place 
where he had left the Indians. Capt. Geo. Berry was also out with 
his company. It would seem that Capt. Skillin had marched his 
men out to cover the frontier beyond New Marblehead as will 
appear. 

Upon the morning of May 14th the people at New Marblehead 
feeling a degree of security in the knowledge that the several com- 
panies were scouting upon the frontiers, and thus affording them 
protection, were rendered less cautious than usual, and as it was 
now planting time there was great eagerness to get their crops in 
that they might secure the needed harvest. Ezra Brown and 
Ephraim Winship started out on that morning to work upon a 
portion of Brown's farm which was about a mile northeast from the 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 229 

fort. A detail of the guard for that day was appointed to accom- 
pany them; for it was the custom for all the able-bodied men of 
the plantation to take turns in guarding, the money allowed by the 
Province for the purpose being equally distributed amongst the 
families. The guards detailed on this morning were Abraham 
Anderson, probably in command, Stephen Manchester, Joseph 
Sterling and John Farrow, and four boys, viz.: Timothy Colin 
Cloutman, Gershom Winship, Stephen Tripp and Thomas Man- 
chester. Brown and Winship, impatient to get to their work* 
started out ahead of their guard some sixty rods, following a wind- 
ing wood-road to the back range of lots. They had passed beyond 
sight of their guards down into a hollow where the woods were 
dense and near where a brook ran across the road, when a party of 
Indians lying in wait suddenly shot a volley from their ambush 
near at hand, killing Brown upon the spot, and shooting Winship 
in the arm and one eye, so that he fell as if dead. The Indians 
rushed forward and scalped their victims, and were still engaged in 
this work when the guards alarmed by the shots came down upon 
them. The guard had divided however upon the alarm, and Ster- 
ling and Farrow with the boys Tripp and Manchester, hastened 
back to the fort; while Mr. Anderson calling out in a voice of com- 
mand, "follow on, my lads," as though he had a company along, 
and followed by Stephen Manchester and the two boys, Cloutman 
and Winship, pressed forward towards the enemy. They hastily 
fled and concealed themselves upon the sight of our little band, 
evidently thinking it to be a much larger force, as the little party 
seems to have spread out somewhat, Manchester having passed to 
the right of Mr. Anderson several rods unobserved by the enemy. 
While the two parties thus stood concealed and watching for an 
advantage, Mr. Anderson by some incautious movement, drew the

fire of one of the Indians, whose shot however was without effect; 
and the savage in his haste to reload, and watching for a return 
shot from Anderson, became exposed to Manchester's deliberate 
aim, and was by him shot and killed. Upon his fall the Indians 
set up a great yelling and rushed together about his body, when the 
rest of our little company's muskets were emptied into their midst, 
and two more of the Indians were killed or mortally wounded, it is 
said. The enemy then hastily gathered up their fallen comrades 
and fled for their lives, leaving behind them in their haste and terror 
everything but their arms and such articles of clothing as they had 
on at the time when they had crept out from their camp of "wig- 
wams " and down to the low ground to waylay Mr. Brown and his 
companion. The unexpected and sharp attack of Mr. Anderson's 
little company evidently threw them into disorder, and then the 
shot of Stephen Manchester, by which, as was found afterwards, 
their leader fell, completed their demoralization, and when the last 
volley was poured into their midst as they gathered about the fallen 
chief they became panic-stricken and seizing their dead and wound- 
ed they vanished without stopping to go back to their wigwams or 
trying to recover any of their property. They probably supposed 
a large company were upon them and feared to be surrounded and 
cut off; while on the other hand our men were not aware of the 
real condition of the foe or the amount of damage their muskets 
had wrought, while they were suspicious of the old-time tricks of 
the Indians to lure them into an ambush. So our little "army" of 
two men and two boys all unconscious of their victory reloaded 
their muskets and waited and watched for some further movement 
of their foe. Hut they waited also for the expected reinforcement 
from the garrison. A small party after awhile came to their relief 
from Mayberry's garrison, with whose assistance they were able to 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 231 

bring away their fallen comrades. In the meantime Capt. Skillin 
who with his company had gone out a short time before, and was 
at the time within a mile or two of the fort, hastily returned at the 
alarm of the guns and immediately organized for pursuit. It is to 
be regretted that so very little concerning this affair has been 
handed down from the older people. Twenty-five years ago I in- 
terviewed many of our then oldest people in regard to the matter, 
and then even it was only that which had appeared in Squire 
Smith's address which could be elicited in answer; while we cannot 
doubt that many of the generation before them had talked over the 
circumstances and dwelt upon the details and names in the hearing 
of the children. But it is the same in this as in many other cases 
of historical facts, when once an account is put into print it be- 
comes the only authority, and all details outside and beyond that 
are gradually dropped and lost. The only contemporary record of 
the affairs of which we have knowledge was the petition of April 
4, 1757, given below, and the daily journal of Rev. Thomas Smith 
made the same day. The latter writes in his Journal under date 
of May 14, 1756 : 

"This morning one Brown was killed, and Winship was wounded and scalped at 
Marblehead. Manchester fired upon them, and we hope killed an Indian, as did 
Capt. Skillin another. The Indians fled afrighted and left five packs, a bow and 
bunch of arrows, and several other things." 

Brown and Winship were going with a guard of four men and four lads to work 
upon Brown's Place, about a mile from the fort, right back, and the two Walkers 
forward on about sixty rods, and the Indians fired on them ; whereupon Manches- 
ter fired once, but Farrow and Sterling with the other two lads ran away home, 
and the Indians fled also in great haste. Capt. Skillin with a company being 
gone out in the woods about a mile, were called back, and with Capt. Brown's scout 
(that happened also to be there), pursued the Indians and fired on one, and 
then all shouted for victory. Manchebter was the hero of the action, but Anderson 
behaved gallantly : " Follow on my lads ;" or the English, perhaps all of them, would 
have been killed. 



232 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

It is probable that Parson Smith received his account from Capt. 
Skillin himself or some one of his company, and thus it would 
appear that the company had a close connection with the fight; but 
it is very evident that Mr. Anderson and his three comrades gained 
the victory by their brave stand and prompt action. The two boys, 
Winship and Cloutman, were aged respectively about twenty and 
eighteen, and proved able to take mens places in the fight. When 
Squire Smith was gathering his material for his Centennial Address 
in 1839, many of the children of the actors in this affair were still 
living and able to testify, so that there can be no doubt of the re- 
liability of the "all too brief" account which he was able to con- 
dense into the address of one hour. A debt of gratitude is due 
Mr. Smith for his efforts in that address which has preserved for us 
all so much that would otherwise have been lost. In his account 
we learn the names of those who were with Mr. Anderson and Mr. 
Manchester in the fight ; he also tells us that it was Seth Webb, 
who in the pursuit of the Indians, (probably under the command of 
Capt. Skillin,) killed the Indian at the "Meadows" on the east 
side of Canada Hill. The petition below was to represent the 
needs of the settlers as briefly as possible, so they give no details, 
and only mention the circumstances, and the articles left behind as 
showing the danger of a return of the enemy, and their own need 
of help and protection by the Province. 

We gain, however, new and reliable information about affairs in 
the petition which otherwise would have been lost. We learn that 
the Indians brought their packs of " beaver," i. e., furs of various 
kinds, which the settlers in a general way called beaver, as that was 
the chief in value ; also that they left other things of value, blankets, 
ammunition, caps and knives, besides the things which Parson 
Smith mentions. The Indians were evidently ready to trade as 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 233 

well as fight. It was customary for a war-party to take along a few 
bows and a supply of arrows for taking game, without betraying 
their presence to their enemies, by the use of fire-arms. 

It may seem strange to us now that a stronger force did not at 
once go out from the fort upon the alarm from the guns, and that 
of those who returned immediately upon the first shot. But it 
must be remembered that it was a well-known trick of Indian 
warfare to send forward a small decoy party to make a show of 
attack, and draw out the garrison force into an ambush; so that it 
had become a general order, in garrison service, to hold the garrison 
soldiers to their posts in time of war and in case of threatened 
attack; and young Knights had reported a strong war-party of one 
hundred and twenty on the war-path. It is also remembered that 
the first reports of approaching Indians always magnified the 
numbers tenfold the actual.

HILL FAMILY OF ELIOT. 



We have received through the kindness of Dr. W. B. Lapham of Augusta, a 
copy of his Hill Family of Dover, N. H, in which we find the statement of Mr. 
Fogg, in the Hill Family of Eliot (Recorder, Vol. 5, p. 158), concerning the parent- 
age of Samuel 2 - (Joseph 1 ^) to be contradicted. Mr. Fogg was in doubt but made his 
statement according to the most accurate statistics obtainable by him. Since that 
time Dr. Lapham has found records which appear to prove beyond a doubt that 
Samuel, 2 who married Mary Nelson, was Samuels (Samuel, 2 John 1 ). Dr. Lapham 
says: "John Hill 1 of Dover, 1668, was probably the John Hill who m. Elizabeth 
Strong at Boston, Jan. 16, 1656. There are reasons for supposing he was a 
brother to Valentine Hill, a mercer from London, who was in Boston in 1638, 
and removed to Oyster River (Dover) and cL p-evious to 1662. 

No record has been found of the children of John Hill. The only birth in 
the family recorded in Dover, is that of Benjamin, and no mention is subsequently 
made of him. Records of the transfers of real estate in Dover show that he had at 
least three other sons, but whether he had daughters has not been ascertained. 
The order of the births of the sons of John Hill is probably : — 

1. Joseph, 2 b. 1658. 

2. Samuel, 2 b. ; m. 16S0, Elizabeth Williams. 

3. John, 2 b. 1661. 

4. Benjamin, 2 b. Apr. 8, 1665; probably cl. unman' :d. 

Samuel 2 Hill (John 1 ) had bought land and moved to Kittery prior to 1696. 
His will was probated in 1723 by his widow, Elizabeth. His children were. 

1. John, 3 b. Nov. 30, 1681 ; lived in Portsmouth. 

2. Elizabeth, 3 b. Nov. 7, 1683; m. Geo. Marshall Feb. 25, 1701-2. 

3. Mary, 3 b. Apr. 6, 1685; m. Benj. Welsh. 

4. Hannah, 3 b. Sept. 29, 1687; m. Samuel More. 

5. Abigail, 3 b. Sept. 29, 1689; m. Ebenezer Dennett. 

6. Samuel, 3 b. Dec. 13, 1696; m. Mary Nelson of Newugton, Nov. 22, 1716. 

7. Sarah, 3 b. July 28, 1701 ; m. Joseph Fogg of Scarboro. 

8. Benjamin, 3 b. July 2, 1703; m. Mary Neal. 

9. Joseph, 3 b. July 28, 1706; m. Abigail Libby. " 

Samuel 3 Mill (Samuel, 2 John 1 ) who m. Mary Nelson, then, is the " Samuel 2 
(Joseph 1 )," as published erroneously in RECORdER, Y01. 5, p. 138. The remaining 
record corresponds with the Doctor's account as represented in the Dover Hills.

Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 245 

Essex SS Salem Feb? 27, 1728-9. 

Moses Felt and John Deal personally appeared before us the 
Subscribers and made oath to the truth of the above written 
Evidence, to be law in Perpetuam reis memoriam. 

Sam 1 Brown.) Jus. 
William Gedney, Jun r . | Peace. 

John Deal was a sailor, and temporally a resident at Casco, the 
same as he was in other ports. 

Moses Felt resided, before the Indian war of 1675, at Great 
Cove, then in the town of North Yarmouth, the Farm which he 
resided on joined Falmouth line. He was born in North Yarmouth 
in 1650, and resided there, and Falmouth until, 1690, with the 
exception of the Indian Wars, and was living in Chelsea in 1733' 
aged eighty-three. 

James Andrews Jun. was a son of James Andre ws Sen. who was 
a son of Samuel Andrews, who came from London, was born in 
1635, in Saco. Soon after 1638, removed to Falmouth with his 
mother, who was married to Arthur Mackworth. 

The land is that which James H. Smith owns, East of Stevens' 
Mill at New Casco (Falmouth). The Cove is now known as 
Mill Cove. It was granted by the Proprietors of Falmouth to 
Benjamin Blackstone, in June 1728. The above deposition was 
taken in the interest of the claimants of the title held by Andrews. 

The mill ruins, which are referred to, was erected by James 
Andrews sen., and the dam was a short distance above the present 
one, Andrew's House was in view of the mill, and a few years since 
the embankmemt which marked the site was discernible.

Pillsbury. — T am collecting material for a 
genealogy of the Pillsbury families, and would

Getchell.— My father, Hubbard Getchell, is 
a native of Sanford, Me., as was his father, 
Joshua, who died in 1831 ; and also his grand-

Genealogy of Dows or Dowse Family. 
An illustrated genealogy of the ten generations 
of Dows or Dowse family in America, dating 
from the immigrant ancestor, Lawrence Dows. 
1642 — 1S90. The work also includes a geneal- 
ogy of the Masterman family, two branches of 
the Newman family, and many genealogical lines 
of other names by intermarriage. Compiled by 
Azro Milton Dows, 213 Central Street, Lowell, 
Mass. 

"John Hill of Dover, N. H., 1649, AND 
some of his Descendants" is the name of a 
pamphlet compiled by Dr. W. B. Lapham, of 
Augusta, introducing a more extensive work on 
the Hill Family, soon to follow. All who are 
interested should communicate at once with 
John F. Hill, Augusta, Me. 

WANTED. — Autograph letters, documents, 
engraved portraits, book plates and Maine 
pamphlets. H. W. Bryant, 218 Middle Street,

learning in the world. Its twenty-fifth annual 
catalogue is received. Those desiring to avail 
themselves of the advantages of this school may

tution. 

A Great Work. — James W. Arnold, editor 
of the N'arragansett Historical Register, of 
Providence, R. I., has nearly completed his 
record of every birth, marriage and death as 
shown by the public records from 1636 to 1850, 
and will add the wills and inventories, thereby 
showing every family in the state of Rhode 
Island, as recorded in the books of the various 
towns. He will commence the publication of 
this work as soon as he has received the needed 
encouragement by subscriptions. A work of 
this kind will prove an invaluable aid to every 
genealogical scholar in the land, and should be 
well supported. We wish Mr. Arnold the 
greatest success in his enterprise. A work of 
this character is certainly a public necessity at 
this time.
